There weren’t many big surprises in Tuesday’s primaries, but a few of the results were interesting. In the 2nd Congressional District, GOP moderate and state Treasurer Lynn Jenkins appears to have narrowly prevailed against social conservative and former Rep. Jim Ryun, though a vote-counting goof could change the outcome. And in the Johnson County district attorney race, Phill Kline got clobbered by Steve Howe, a former assistant district attorney Kline had dismissed after Kline was appointed to the job. Ouch. Locally, Karl Peterjohn, executive director of the Kansas Taxpayers Network, soundly defeated incumbent Tom Winters in the Sedgwick County Commission race.
