TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ An openly gay candidate for the State Board
of Education has lost his race against a conservative member, but a
coalition of moderates and Democrats continued to hold the
Democrat Christopher Renner of Manhattan lost to Republican Kathy Martin of Clay Center in the 6th District of northeast and north-central Kansas.
In other board races, two Democrats and a moderate Republican won and another Democrat was ahead with half the votes counted. That means the moderate coalition in January will either be 7-3 or the current 6-4 edge. Five members -- a Democrat, two conservatives and two moderates -- weren't up for re-election this year.
