Moran, Jenkins elected to leadership Republican positions


Two members of the Kansas congressional delegation won leadership positions on Wednesday.

U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran, a Republican, was elected to serve as chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Topeka, was elected vice chair of the House Republican Conference.

Moran will be responsible for recruiting GOP Senate candidates and helping them raise campaign funds.

Jenkins, who just won re-election to a third term, will be part of the Republican leadership team, advancing the party's agenda.

There are worse things in life than having members of your state, who were elected by a majority of their constituents, holding positions of power in government.

So it looks like Moran will be spending a lot of time away from his job..... and furthering corruption.

Jerry Moran might have had the votes to get the position but he has the moxie of an opossum.

Love or hate the Senator and Congresswoman, it is of great benefit to Kansas that we have members of the leadership in both the House and Senate representing the interests and people of our great State. Congratulations to both.

OMG! Jenkins leading the party is such a farce. Sad, sad, sad day for the GOP. She is a tea partier and if that is the direction the GOP want to go then they are more stupid than a large rock.
