Kansas Secretary of State Republican primary: J.R. Claeys vs. Kris Kobach
J.R. Claeys is a Republican candidate for Kansas Secretary of State. By all accounts, if it were most other races, Claeys would be a strong candidate: he talks like a conservative, and he has a strong resume for his young age of 31.

Tiahrt Welcomes Parker Griffith to GOP
U.S. Representative Todd Tiahrt (R-Kansas) today released the following statement following the announcement that U.S. Representative Parker Griffith (R-Alabama) has switched his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican.
“President Obama and Speaker Pelosi have seen their first victim of the ill-conceived takeover of America’s healthcare system,” said Tiahrt. “Parker Griffith has seen the Obama/Pelosi government-down approach to the economy and fully understands it is bad for the economy and the future of our country.
“Parker clearly understands what most Americans are saying – they do not want government controlling our economy or running our healthcare system. If President Obama and Speaker Pelosi continue to turn a deaf ear to the American people, Parker and I will be joined in Congress by many more Republicans following the 2010 elections.
Mr. Obama has revived the worst impressions of the Democratic party – profligate and undisciplined, arrogant, lovers of big government, increasers of taxes. The issues and narrative for American politics in the foreseeable future has been set – limited government versus exploding government, capitalism versus European style socialism, responsible and measured policies versus reckless and radical ones.

The new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 44% would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate while 36% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent. Support for GOP candidates held steady over the past week, but support for Democrats slipped by a point.
