In election after election tonight, Brownback supporting conservatives found themselves going down in flames, with incumbents being thrown out of office in races from Johnson County to Reno County, and moderate Republicans — some recently former (D)s — doing the tossing. Whether it was the senate or the house, nothing could stop the voter refusal of the Brownback plan.
The run of Brownback favored allies in the state looks like a firing squad, as Brownback supporters who faced opposition ran into a buzzsaw of those who voiced the ‘Throw the bums out’ complaint. Now, many races for the fall will show a new landscape: Democrats VS moderate Republicans in a chance to reshape the state house with new ideas.
This gives a whole new look for both parties in the fall, in many races locking out Koch-supported allied groups like AFP and others, who openly opposed these primary challengers.
Yay to all the Republican moderates who went out and voted these idiots OUT OF TOPEKA.
Remember folks, that your state and local governments are more relevant to your life.
This is why I was so against Cruz and his type.

derp. Ya think? YES, we know that. This whole debacle was about not taxing anyone. It's ridiculous. You can't eliminate taxes and have a decent state infrastructure for the people. You just can't do it. You can try - but it WILL FAIL.
