TOPEKA (AP) - Kansas is getting a new Republican state treasurer.

Sedgwick County treasurer Ron Estes defeated Democratic incumbent Dennis McKinney in Tuesday's election.

McKinney was appointed state treasurer in 2008 by Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, after Republican treasurer Lynn Jenkins was elected to the U.S. House.

Estes was outspent 6-to-1 by McKinney in this fall's campaign, and their race was low-key. Even as Estes promised to make improvements, he acknowledged that he didn't have much criticism of McKinney.

Dennis is a friend, and although I am a lifelong Republican, he had my vote and I am disappointed for this good public servant.

In both the AG race and the Sec of State races, the incumbent Democrats are moderates concerned mostly with doing an effective job in largely non-partisan positions.

They'll be replaced by extreme ideologues. It can only be assumed that competence in governance will be sacrificed in favor of advancing ideological agendas.
