Kansans are still waiting to hear more from Sens. Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran about why they are putting party over geography in opposing President Obama's nomination of former Kansas Attorney General Steve Six to join the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Meanwhile, Fort Hays State University political scientist Chapman Rackaway has a theory: "Remember 2010? Todd Tiahrt's relentless campaign claiming Moran wasn't conservative enough might still ring in the ears of the junior senator's campaign staff," Rackaway wrote in the Hays Daily News. "If Moran and Roberts vote for Six, imagine the ads that would come out in 2014 and 2016 primaries claiming the senators have been 'doing Obama's dirty work' (or insert your own comparative ad language here) by approving his nominees." In other words, a vote for Six would mark them as RINOs (Republicans in name only).
