Without Heavyweight, GOP Could Lose Kansas 2nd Congressional District

By JIM MCLEAN • JUN 5, 2018.

Democrat Paul Davis awaits the winner among seven GOP primary contenders: (top row, left to right) Steve Fitzgerald, Kevin Jones, Dennis Pyle, Caryn Tyson, (bottom row) Vernon Fields, Doug Mays, and Steve Watkins.

The field of Republicans running in Kansas’ 2nd Congressional District is large, but some party leaders worry, not strong enough to keep the seat from falling into Democratic hands for the first time since 2006.

Seven Republicans are competing for the opportunity to face the lone Democrat in the race, Paul Davis, in the November general election. None has the name recognition of Davis, a former minority leader in the Kansas House who in 2014 nearly unseated former Gov. Sam Brownback.

Likewise, none can match Davis’ more than $1 million in campaign contributions. In fact, several Republican contenders — Kansas senators Steve Fitzgerald and Caryn Tyson, and political newcomer Steve Watkins — have made personal loans of $150,000 or more to their campaigns to push their fundraising totals into respectable territory.

Republican Party leaders’ unease about the 2nd District race turned to alarm recently when trackers at the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics and Real Clear Politics moved the race from a “likely (Republican) win” into the “toss up” column on their prediction boards.
