Is a Kansas Surprise Brewing?

Posted June 16, 2008 at 2:04pm

Kansas Democrat Jim Slattery, a former House member from Topeka, has pulled within nine points of incumbent Republican Pat Roberts in the Senate race, according to a Rasmussen survey released today. This poll, which shows Roberts ahead 48 percent to 39 percent, marks the first time he has led by less than double digits and the first time fewer than 50% of Kansans have supported the incumbent.
