“I think I can win this,” Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard, told The Eagle editorial board about his decision to run for U.S. Senate in 2010. Though a poll by his GOP primary opponent, Rep. Jerry Moran, R-Hays, had Moran leading, Tiahrt said that their positive ratings and statewide name recognition were virtually the same. “People know about me because I get things done,” Tiahrt said. Tiahrt has been developing a plan for the race for about a year and will focus on his accomplishments and vision for the future, he said. He expects tough races in both the primary and, if he wins, in the general election, in which he expects the Democratic opponent to be Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. “I will take nothing for granted,” Tiahrt said.
