TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Democratic leaders in the Kansas Legislature are hoping Republicans disillusioned with the results of their party's primaries will back Democrats in November.
House Minority Leader Paul Davis and Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley said Wednesday the general election gives voters one more chance to decide how far Gov. Sam Brownback can advance his conservative agenda.
Eight moderate GOP incumbents were ousted from the state Senate Tuesday by conservative challengers.
Hensley says an unprecedented amount of outside money was spent on the GOP primaries.
But he and Davis say despite being the minority party in Kansas, Democrats offer an alternative to stopping conservative policies from advancing.
