A Rasmussen poll confirms the conventional wisdom that state Sen. Jim Barnett, R-Emporia, is the front runner among GOP challengers to Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. Still, it suggests she would beat Barnett with 49 percent of the vote to his 36 percent. If former House Speaker Robin Jennison of Healy emerges the winner of the Aug. 1 primary, the poll said, he’d only get 31 percent of the vote against Sebelius.
And with the GOP contenders numbering seven as of last week’s filing deadline, The Kansas City Star’s Buzz Blog passed along this inevitable label for the race, credited to an unnamed “wag”: “Snow White vs. the Seven Dwarfs.”
