Steve Mirakian sits in for Woody this week.
We can discuss the key issues and races that are being decided today. They include, but are not limited to: Kansas City, Missouri, sales tax and sewer questions; 5th District GOP House race; and Republican race for U.S. Senate nomination.
This discussion will focus on the races for the state senate, especially those in Johnson County, and the impact they will likely have on Governor Brownback’s agenda. Please note the New York Times article on Kansas politics that you will receive. It’s likely to be raised by me as a discussion question.
A “CRUZ” TO CAPITOL HILL?
Texas Republicans have nominated the underdog candidate for the U.S. Senate. Ted Cruz overcame a 14 point deficit to defeat the state’s Lt. Governor and the party establishment. Cruz is a “hero” of the Tea Party.
A FREIGHTQUOTE “QUOTE.”
We can discuss the planned move of Freightquote from Lenexa to Kansas City, Missouri, and the ongoing battle over “poaching.”
