OTTAWA— A freshman conservative Republican in the Kansas House has moved to another city to run for re-election, avoiding a potential primary contest with another GOP conservative.
Rep. TerriLois Gregory lived in Baldwin City when she was elected in the 10th District of northeast Kansas in 2010. The district included part of Douglas County and neighboring Franklin County.
But three federal judges hearing a political redistricting lawsuit adjusted House districts last week to account for shifts in population over the past decade.
The new 10th District now includes the Eudora home of Rep. Anthony Brown, who was first elected in 2004.
Gregory announced Saturday that she moved to Ottawa, now outside the 10th District, and registered to vote there to run for the open 59th District seat.
