|Nominee||Jerry Moran||Lisa Johnston|
The 2010 United States Senate election in Kansas is going to take place on November 2, 2010. The conservative Republican Sam Brownback, who is now the Senator from Kansas since 1996, has already expressed that he is not going to run for re-seeking the post. He has already manifested his desire to run for the election Governor of Kansas instead.
Kansas is however, a prominent Republican state; since 1938, there is no history of any Democrat elected to the Senate from the state.
There are in fact quite a number of impressive candidates who can act as possible successors to Brownback.
They include Jerry Moran (U.S. Congressman), Todd Tiahrt (U.S. Congressman), Tom Little (Accountant) and Bob Londerholm (former state Attorney General) from the Republican Party.
From the Democrats, the possible candidates are Lisa Johnston (University Administrator), Robert Conroy (Retired Railroad Employee), David Haley (State Senator), Charles Schollenberger (Retired Communications Executive), and Patrick Wiesner (Attorney and CPA)
