Red, but not totally into the Trump's America thing: Leavenworth County, Kansas

Burdett Loomis: Previewing 2020: Beyond Trump.  (Leavenworth Times, 2/3/2020)
The 2020 primary, even without a constitutional ballot issue, is shaping up as a watershed in Kansas GOP politics. Open U.S. Senate seats rarely come up in Kansas, and Republicans have held both seats for more than 80 years. But any primary that includes the caustic, unapologetic Kris Kobach presents a major problem for Kansas Republicans. While he has a solid base in a multi-candidate primary, Kobach has a low general election ceiling, per his 2018 gubernatorial showing. 
Kobach on the ticket would guarantee a highly competitive November general election, with Democrat Barbara Bollier, offering her party a once-in-a-century opportunity to capture a senate seat.
