— The wife of retiring U.S. Rep. Dennis Moore has filed to run for his seat in Kansas’ 3rd Congressional District.

Stephene Moore filled out her paperwork Thursday in the Johnson County election commissioner’s office in Olathe and had it hand-delivered to the secretary of state’s office in Topeka. It arrived about two hours ahead of the noon filing deadline.

She joined an already crowded race to succeed her husband, who’s represented the Kansas City-area district for 12 years.

Nine Republicans have filed for Moore’s seat, led by Kansas House Appropriations Committee Chairman Kevin Yoder, of Overland Park, and former state Rep. Patricia Lightner, of Olathe. John Rysavy, an Overland Park biosciences executive, filed Thursday as well.

I think it's wonderful. As the voters didn't get a chance to send Dennis off with the kick in the a** he deserved (since he skulked away into retirement after saddling his constituents with that travesty of a health care 'reform' bill), the voters now have a chance to express their displeasure with his stand-in.

In thinking it over no one has mentioned Sir Thomas Moore. To all you K-State grads that worked with chickens and livestock instead of English history Sir Thomas Moore was beheaded by Henry VIII because he got in the way of Henry's love life and other ambitions. So Dennis better be thinking about all of this and what happens when One More is One Moore too many.

When asked what prompted her decision to run, Stephane Moore cited a desire to "spend less time with family." "I am well aware of Dennis' decision to retire in order to spend more time with his family. He forgot to check with me first, though. Honestly, I just can not imagine being stuck at home with Dennis puttering about all day," continued the wife of retiring Representative Dennis Moore.

Ms. Moore explained the timing of her decision, "Moore is Moore, more or less. I also believe that all of these stories about more candidates will play well for me also. Voters will most likely mistake that to mean 'more Moores' and vote for me."

There is also "Moore's Law described as follows:

Moore's law describes a long-term trend in the history of computing hardware, in which the number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit has doubled approximately every two years.[1]

under this concept the number of Moore's running for office could double every two years which works out well because that is a congressional term. Therefore 2010 1 Moore, 2012 2 Moore, 2014 4 Moore's and on and on. Moore Squared to the eighth is 512 which is more Moores than the House can hold so Moores would run over to the Senate.

When Stephene first announced her intent, Congressional Quarterly (CQ) immediately moved the race from leans R to toss-up. And with Kevin Yoder doing his best to diss public education in JoCo, it may have pushed the district even a bit more toward her.

And if Steph isn't up for the rigors of the campaign, Kansas Democrats plan to run Roger Moore, Demi Moore, or Clayton Moore. Yeah, Clayton Moore (Lone Ranger) has passed on, but the name Moore is still what matters more than anything, apparently.
