2014 KS-01: James Sherow (D) v Teabagger Congressman Huelskamp (R)

Incumbent U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp is a tea party favorite and Kansas farmer known for his criticism of the GOP leadership. He is seeking a third two-year term. Huelskamp was stripped in 2012 of the farm state’s nearly automatic seat on the House Agriculture Committee.








Huelskamp is challenged in this year’s GOP primary by Alan LaPolice, a Clyde farmer and educator who has made Huelskamp’s conflicts with other Republicans the centerpiece of his campaign.

The Cook Political Report Partisan Voting Index rates the Kansas 1st congressional district as [/break1]com/file/2013-04-47.pdf]R+23. It's almost guaranteed a Republican will be elected to this House seat in November; just no guarantee it will be Huelskamp again.

Primary election day in Kansas has the possibility of being interesting. A Teabagger (Milton Wolf) is challenging the incumbent conservative US Senator (Pat Roberts) while in the 1st congressional district the incumbent Teabag member of the US House (Tim Huelskamp) is being challenged by another conservative Republican (Alan LaPolice). Either race could be influenced/decided by a GOTV effort for the other election contest.The campaign website for Alan LaPolice is available [/break1]true-conservative.org/]here.I believe that public service is an honor and a responsibility. I believe that if our politicians are accomplishing nothing and accusing others with the blame, then they too are to blame. "If you're not part of the solution, you are part of the problem."LaPolice's 6 items on his policy statement shouldn't turn off many 1st district voters. If they elect LaPolice it appears the only thing they will lose will be Huelskamp's mouth and attitude; IOW no loss.[/break1]true-conservative.org/democracy.html]http://www.true-conservative.org/democr ... LaPolice's website was easier for me to read at 75%. YMMV.[/edit]

A year ago Congressman Tim Huelskamp was considered to be a lock to get re-elected. Huelskamp is probably still the favorite but his actions in Congress the past year haven't gone unnoticed, including getting kicked off the House Agriculture Committee.


Eleven biofuel plants dot the vast expanse of western and central Kansas, where farm fields stretch to the horizon and corn and sorghum are the backbone of the rural economy.





So when the Republican congressman who represents the area [Tim Huelskamp] co-sponsored a bill that would cut demand for biofuels by phasing out a federal renewable energy program, many of his rural constituents took note. Their anger is now coming back to haunt U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp in the waning days before the Aug. 5 GOP primary.








A political action committee, Now or Never, has dumped more than $260,000 into the race to oppose Huelskamp, regulatory filings show. The group's ads feature Tom Willis, a Kansas farmer and president of Conestoga Energy Partners, which owns ethanol plants in Liberal and Garden City that make fuel from corn.








The ethanol industry has been the "best success story for rural America" in the last 20 years, Willis said in an interview. Willis said Huelskamp was "willing to put all that at risk for his ideology."
