Kansas Republicans are openly considering a 4-0 congressional map, but trends in Johnson County make this very risky.
Democrats feel confident that Republican Kris Kobach facing the Democratic front runner, State Senator Barbara Bollier, would lead to a competitive race in Kansas, but unfortunately for Democrats this is likely not the reality. Kobach is weaker than other Republicans, but there is no reason to believe that he is weak enough to lose a seat the GOP has held since 1932.
By running away from the party system, strategic independents can provide real competition and choices to voters in uncompetitive states.
