It was noteworthy that Kansas GOP Sens. Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran released nearly identical statements Wednesday evening saying that they would not support the nomination of former Kansas Attorney General Steve Six (in photo) to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Neither said why he wouldn’t support the well-qualified Six, who, in addition to pulling the Attorney General’s Office out of the ditch during his short tenure, has been a district judge, an attorney in private practice and a law clerk to the appellate judge he’s trying to succeed. That lack of explanation is likely because there isn’t a good reason, and that their opposition is mostly driven by partisanship and abortion politics.
