Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., does not plan to run for Senate, he told CQ Roll Call Wednesday.  

"Nope. My wife’s pretty clear on that," he said just outside the House chamber, when asked if he was still thinking about running for Senate. In November, Huelskamp told CQ Roll Call  he was open to the possibility of challenging Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan. Now that he's eschewed that statewide bid, the three-term Republican might have to navigate his own primary  in 2016.

One of the House’s top troublemakers could be in trouble in 2016.  

Kansas conservative Rep. Tim Huelskamp has angered fellow Republicans with his politics and personality in Congress. If he chooses to seek re-election in 2016 , some of his detractors see an opportunity to oust him for good in a primary.  

Kansas: Court Issues Map, Redistricting Over

The nation's decennial redistricting process finished late Thursday night when a federal court in Kansas released the state's new Congressional map.

Despite the political drama leading up to the court's decision, the new Kansas map doesn't make any sweeping changes to the state's Congressional lines.

Between the Lines: Federal Court to Take Up New Kansas Map

A federal court will take up the new Kansas Congressional map May 29, while the Republican-controlled state House will make a last-ditch effort to rescue the mapmaking process.

The court's imminent redraw is unpredictable, but it's likely at least one of the state's four GOP Members will get a more competitive district under the new map.
