One Year From KS GOP Senate Primary, Moran and Tiahrt Face An Undecided Electorate: Jerry Moran and Todd Tiahrt continue to battle for votes in the race for the GOP nomination to fill Sam Brownback's open US Senate seat, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted for KWCH-TV Wichita and KCTV-TV Kansas City. Today, likely Republican Primary voters split into three groups. Moran gets 38%. Tiahrt 32%. 30% are undecided.
Tiahrt, US Representative for Kansas' 4th Congressional District, located toward the southeastern part of the state, leads by 3:1 in Southeastern Kansas. Moran, who represents Kansas' 1st Congressional District, which takes up most of the western two-thirds of the state, leads 6:1 in that part of the state. In the northeastern portion of the state, however, home to nearly half the state's population, almost half of likely voters are today undecided.
