Even as Kansas’ “Big First” sprawled eastward in the most recent congressional redistricting, it continued to belong as much to western Kansas as to Rep. Jerry Moran, R-Hays. But that could change next year, if Republican Rob Wasinger (in photo) finds success in his bid to succeed Moran. Wasinger, former chief of staff for Sen. Sam Brownback, registered to vote in Hays last year but is moving his family from Virginia to Cottonwood Falls in Chase County, which is 300 miles from the Kansas-Colorado border. Other Republicans planning to seek the seat are state Sen. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler, and Pratt businessman Tim Barker.
