Dear Jim Jordan, Huelskamp lost 47 of 62 counties in US House 1

He lost counties all over his district.  His time was obviously up.

If there's anyone to blame, Jim -- and 'credit' is the better word here -- it's GOP voters in Kansas.  They're finally rebelling in sufficient number against their crazy governor's "heralded great experiment in conservative economic theory".

With some races still undetermined on Wednesday, but also leaning toward moderates, the primary was a tangible sign of the grumblings that have been going on under the surface in heavily Republican Kansas, as deep cuts to taxes, a centerpiece of the Brownback agenda, have left the state short on revenue and led to cuts to government services.
