In an article in the liberal New Republic headlined “What’s Not the Matter With Kansas: Change of Heartland,” writer John B. Judis suggests the Kansas Democratic Party has risen from the dead. Noting the Democratic successes of recent elections, such as those of Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, Attorney General Paul Morrison and Rep. Nancy Boyda, D-Topeka, he writes: “Like Indiana, Nebraska, and other reputedly red states, Kansas has become politically competitive.” Judis credits “the combination of a fratricidal GOP and a rapidly expanding Johnson County electorate.”
