Republicans are sending in Ted Cruz to salvage a Kansas congressional race that should have been a sure thing

.....Voters in Kansas head to the polls on Tuesday for a special election to select a new congressman to replace former Rep. Mike Pompeo, who President Donald Trump tapped to lead the CIA. Kansas Democrats nominated civil rights attorney Jim Thompson while the Republicans nominated their State Treasurer Ron Estes.

Although Harry Enten of Fivethirtyeight argued in February that Democrats will find it “extremely difficult to win in a district that no Republican congressional candidate has won by less than 20 percentage points since 2002,” Politico reported late Friday that the National Republican Congressional Committee has spent more than $90,000 in ads during the final days of the race. This include $67,000 to air a TV spot that accuses Thompson of being too pro-choice on abortion for Kansas voters, while another $25,000 has been spent on digital advertising.....

....Perhaps most surprising of all is the fact that Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is also reported to be visiting Kansas to campaign on Estes’ behalf. The choice of Cruz itself makes sense, given that he defeated President Donald Trump in the 2016 Kansas caucuses with more than twice as many votes, but sending out Cruz suggests that the party is worried about voter turnout in this deeply red district and believes a higher-profile Republican can help boost the base.....

Why does it need to be "salvaged"?

This is a hit piece by a liberal dumpster.

A bigger race to watch is the 6th of GA replacing Tom Price. There is one extra lib democrat and several pubs vying for the two runoff spots. Soros and lib groups are pouring money into the race.

My take on the article is a little different. Regardless if this is just a liberal hit piece or not, the beauty of the article is the fact that the MSM is now reporting on Cruz...they are depicting Cruz as a GOP conservative with some clout.  He not only has name recognition but is seen as a GOP conservative whose actions and opinions matter.  A far cry from where he was when he jumped in to campaign for president.

No big, but FWIW, Salon is probably just a bit above thinkprogress. :biggrin:
