Who will win the race for Kansas state senate, 19th District?

I have followed this race online at I have researched Hensley's long service and Moore's background. While I am registered with the Democratic party and will vote for my party's house candidate, I cannot vote for Hensley. The district Hensley has represented for 30 plus years is notorious for crime, high unemployment and schools that have been fixtures of their communities are closing. All the while Hensley has somehow given himself a 3/4 of $1,000,000 state retirement package but does not think knowing the value of that account is any of our business. As a voter and supporter of educators, I don't agree. I feel like government compensation is tax payers business. I will support Moore because he has been pushing for transparency so we know where money is spent while Hensley will not answer questions. I get bad vibes from reading Hensley quotes and from watching his attack commercials. Moore is also for term limits and said he would represent the district without pay (good luck getting other money hungry politicians to agree to that). For a Republican, Moore seems to hold more of my values than Hensley.
