Primary ColorsBy Caleb Stegall for FRONT PORCH REPUBLIC
Yesterday was primary day in the heartland. My friend Denis Boyles ably recaps the results (his book Superior, Nebraska is excellent Front Porch material and highly recommended). I have three quick things to say:
First, congratulations to two friends, and more importantly, good men, Tim Huelskamp and Kris Kobach, winners respectively of the GOP nod for the Big First Congressional District and Kansas Secretary of State.
Second, I am hopefull that previous Porch contributor and keen observer of all things Kansas, Lance Kinzer, will add his thoughts soon on the state of Porch politics in our fair state, both in terms of recap of the past year and looking forward.
And finally, a quick nod of approval to the Jefferson County Clerk’s Office and their Big Board of election results, photographed just below. This mammoth of an older communal election experience is likely one of the last of its species in this age of automatically updating internet poll results.
