As Kansas voters stated a preference for 100 percent conservative control of state government Tuesday, they also exhibited some disdain for the carpetbagging spurred by redistricting. True, a move from Lindsborg into a McPherson apartment in order to run didn’t hurt GOP Rep. Clark Shultz. But unofficial results left Rep. Jan Pauls, D-Hutchinson, just seven votes ahead of her challenger in the wake of what had seemed like a far-fetched move into an old pew-filled church she and her husband planned to renovate. Voters rejected Gary Mason’s bid to unseat Sen. Carolyn McGinn, R-Sedgwick, after Mason made a last-minute move from Wichita to Park City to enable his run. And Rep. TerriLois Gregory, R-Baldwin City, lost badly after having relocated to Ottawa in hopes of staying in the House.
