It's not been one but both the D & R parties that have been dividing and disenfranchising this country for the last 30 years especially. Not all Democrats lost in yesterday's election and they still hold the majority in the Senate. Some infusion of the "red" into the "blue" was needed to bring about some control to the idealogies of one, only one, political party. Both the Ds and Rs need to be meeting each other halfway toward a center. Steve Six wasn't one of those who represented anything other than special interest, which obviously enough people knew to give him his notice to vacate the office.

I was happy to see Lynn Jenkins get another term, but Kevin Yoder winning the 3rd District was sweet, real sweet.

This is good, now we can join the other states in opting out of the healthcare.

Six was probably the one Democrat that I could have supported, but when you're on the wrong bus, you're going over the cliff with it...

Voters don't like 'annointed' politicians. Six was hand picked by Kathleen 'the hammer' Sebelius to cover her and Obama's aggregious takeover of healthcare. He didn't have the common sense to oppose Socialistic Healthcare, and the people have spoken. They don't want 'yes men' in office who support wild eyed socialism as he and Sebelius do.

This was the one race that actually shocked me when the results came in.

Do you seriously want to stay with the current headline, since your 7:48 analysis was based on less than 5% of the total vote?
