— Democratic candidate for the U.S. House from northeast Kansas says he has a plan to touch the lives of all residents.

But Sean Tevis gave few details Tuesday during a Statehouse rally launching his campaign in the 2nd Congressional District. Tevis says his idea would end partisan bickering in Congress, and he plans to outline it further sometime soon.

Tevis faces Cheryl Hudspeth, of Girard, and Thomas Koch, of Leavenworth, in the Aug. 3 Democratic primary. Running in the Republican primary are incumbent Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins and state Sen. Dennis Pyle of Hiawatha.

Tevis is an information technology architect. He currently lives in the 3rd Congressional District and says he's moving to Lawrence to establish residency in the 2nd District.

That's better than a right wing, gun toting, bible thumping, science denying, war mongering, immigrant hating, intolerant, raicist GOP mainiac. Isn't it?

Don't write this guy off. He's got some truly fresh ideas and is one of the best fund raisers the state has ever seen.

How do you say, "carpetbagger"? Is this all the Democrat party does? Boyda?

He's lived in the district before. It could be worse, he could be doing what Phill Kline did when he was AG of Johnson County, which was to establish residence by listing his home as a storage garage owned by a supporter.

All of Lawrence will probably be in the second district in 2012.

Since the congressional districts are set by Kansas legislature, I doubt the Republican controlled Kansas legislature would change it that way that would benefit a Democratic Congressional candidate.
