Time for a Recalculation of the Political Calculus
Chad Taylor, the little known Democrat who was his party’s nominee for Senator from Kansas, has officially withdrawn from the race. This leaves independent and former Democrat Greg Orman to challenge incumbent Pat Roberts. In many red states and most of the time this might not mean much but Orman is better funded than Taylor was and according to one recent poll actually leads Roberts in a head to head competition, which is what this race has just become. With Roberts polling badly not only against Orman but also in terms of his positives versus negatives this is one race that has just gone topsy turvy.
