"There's something happening here (Kansas), What it is ain't exactly clear" to quote Buffalo Springfield from the song "For What It's Worth"

From electoral-vote.com:

Bollier Raises $3.7 Million (Who you say? That's what I said -- and I'm a fan of the greatest sport of all)

"If you understand the importance of that, kudos to you. Otherwise, here's the scoop. Former Republican but current Democratic state senator Dr. Barbara Bollier is running for the open U.S. Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS). In Q2, she raised $3.7 million for her race. That's more money than any candidate has raised in any quarter while running for any federal, state, or local office in the entire history of Kansas. And remember, this is a state that hasn't elected a Democrat to the Senate since 1932. The primary is on August 4, but Bollier is virtually certain of winning the Democratic nomination." (bolding, underling, italicizing by me)

Let's repeat for emphasis. That's more money than any candidate has raised in any quarter while running for any federal, state, or local office in the entire history of Kansas. And remember, this is a state that hasn't elected a Democrat to the Senate since 1932.

"There's something happening here (Kansas), What it is ain't exactly clear".

Will the state of Kansas elect a U.S. Senator for the first time since 1932? Probably not. But stranger things have happened. For instance, The St. Louis Cardinals rallied twice from being a strike away from losing the World Series in 2011 in game #6, eventually winning that game and game #7.

Republicans are also at risk of losing seats in Kansas and Alaska in a worst-case scenario. Democrats have not elected a senator in Kansas since 1932, but both parties think the seat could be in play if Republicans nominate former Kansas secretary of state Kris Kobach. Kobach is a conservative whose views on immigration and voter fraud alienate many moderate voters. He lost in 2018 as the GOP nominee for governor, losing to Democrat Laura Kelly by five percentage points.
