Republican state senator to oppose Jenkins in 2nd Congressional District primary

Freshman Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins from Kansas’ 2nd District has picked up a Republican opponent as she seeks re-election this year.

Two-term state Sen. Dennis Pyle of Sabetha , a farmer, cited what he called Jenkins’ “questionable votes” and support from liberal groups.

From a Pyle statement:

“This race will be an issue-oriented one, and we will clearly define the differences between us. Most voters base their choices on the combination of a candidate's record and rhetoric. With me, they will find no differences.
