Seems like a good time to sink some money into Kansas. You can give here to teh eventual Democratic nominee in his district (the primary is on August 4). It’s a heavily Republican district (R+10) but not insanely so.
And you can give here to the Kansas Democratic party, who have a shot at getting the one extra seat in the State house it takes to erase the Republican supermajority and let the governor (a Democrat) have a say in redistricting. (I raised the goal on this — I think it’s a great investment.)
Update: People in the thread showed up to mention the likely Dem nominee in KS-2, Michelle De La Isla is great and this seat may really be flippable.
