The problem is that Taylor and Orman appear to be candidates that will cancel each other out...

Here's the recent polling...

If it were a three man race, which it only is now on the most technical of senses. See, Taylor had most of the Democratic vote whereas Orman had a slice of everyone except the conservative Republicans who have sided with Roberts. My guess is that the Taylor voters arent going split the vote very evenly and will migrate over to supporting Norman.

Informed voters will...Blind party supporters will not...They'll see (D) and vote accordingly...

It'll be weird that for the next couple of months, the official Kansas Democrat Party's position will be "See that Democrat on the ballot? DON'T vote for him!!!"...

Journalists David Lieb and Thomas Beaumont wrote for The Associated Press 10 October 2014:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts and Gov. Sam Brownback, both locked in surprisingly tight re-election bids, each reaffirmed their support for a state constitutional ban on gay marriage as a court in Kansas' largest, most urban county granted a marriage license to two women. In this mostly Republican and rural state, any talk of gay marriage has typically worked in the favor of GOP candidates who are staunchly against it.

...Kansas' constitutional provision, approved with nearly 70 percent support, not only prohibits gay marriage but also denies same-sex couples any "rights and incidents" associated with marriage. ...Brownback spoke out for the ban, saying in written statement: "Activist judges should not overrule the people of Kansas." Roberts issued a similar statement, vowing to "continue to oppose liberal activist judges who defiantly ignore the will of the people."
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

article


All voters who do not endorse the gay lifestyle should check the record of candidates for office in their district and support those who are against a gay marriage.
