Moran favored over Tiahrt

Rep. Jerry Moran, R-Hays, got more good news in the latest SurveyUSA poll, co-sponsored by KWCH, Channel 12. It found that if the GOP primary for U.S. Senate were this month rather than next August, Moran would beat Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard, 38 to 32 percent. This is Moran's largest margin over Tiahrt in the three Survey USA polls since April. The vote-rich northeastern part of the state continues to be key: The poll found that 48 percent of the voters there are undecided.
