The Lawrence Journal-World today endorsed Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins in her bid for re-election, along with several other Kansas Republicans.
Every election for public officeholders is an important event, whether for a school board position, county commission, state or national office.
The outcome of those elections can have important and significant consequences.
The Journal-World believes next Tuesday’s elections are particularly important because of the role those elected to the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives can play during the Obama presidency...
The Journal-World urges the election of Rep. Jerry Moran to the U.S. Senate. Moran has represented Kansas well during his tenure in the House and has earned election to the Senate on his personal merit; the fact that he is a Republican only makes him a more attractive candidate in this election. The Journal-World also urges the election of Republican Kevin Yoder to the U.S. House to provide another GOP voice in that chamber, and also retaining the Republican voice of Rep. Lynn Jenkins.
