He and his kind are the problem in Washington D.C. and the reason term limits are needed. He does not even live in Kansas any longer but a full time Virginia resident. Now a 7 time congressman from Kansas. If you keep voting for the same people your going to keep getting the same results.

It’s bad enough that our do nothing legislature that she was a part of couldn’t draw up new district’s as required by law, causing Sumner County to be sliced up like a pie, the least she could do is show her face over here once in awhile and give the appearance that she gives a S%#@ about us other than election time.

The same rules apply for Kelley as it is with Bales. She has no Democratic challenger in the general election.Steve Warner, District 1 Commissioner, was unopposed as was State Representative Kyle Hoffman in the 116th District. The voting turnout in Sumner County was light with 19.7 percent of the registered voters casting ballots Tuesday.As far as state races were concerned, Sumner County fell in line with all Republican statewide party winners. The big difference was in the percentages of the opponents.For example, Sumner County provided Republican Governor Challenger Jennifer Winn with one of the stiffest challenges in the state against Gov. Sam Brownback. The incumbent won with 1,427 or 57.17 percent of the vote. Winn lost 1,069 with 42.83. But considering Brownback was over 60 percent across the state, this was hardly a rousing endorsement of the governor by Sumner County voters.U.S. Senator Pat Roberts barely knocked off challenger Dr. Milton Wolf in the Republican Primary in Sumner County. The incumbent receive 1,103 votes to Wolf’s 1,075.Sumner County was right in line with the rest of U.S. District 4. Mike Pompeo won Sumner County with 1,578 votes to Todd Tiahrt’s 934.In the only race Sumner County broke rank with the rest of the state is in the Democrat race. Chad Taylor won the Democrat nomination over Patrick Wiesner for U.S. Senate. But in Sumner County, Wiesner defeated Taylor 269 to 254. Taylor will face Roberts in November.Follow us on Twitter. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Cliff Bales, a Republican from Oxford, all but assured himself re-election after beating his challenger Jason Boyd in the Sumner County Commissioner District 3 race for the Republican nomination.
