Cindy Duckett, a conservative activist from Wichita, tells Scott Rothschild of the Lawrence Journal World that the defeat of right-wing school board incumbent Connie Morris, and drive-by candidate Brad Patzer, in the Republican primary doesn't represent an anti-conservative trend among Kansas voters.
Morris was weakened by charges of exorbitant travel expenses, while Van Meter’s district had no incumbent, she said.Say what you like about right-wingers, it didn't take them long to put that knife into Connie's back.
“I’m not sure it is a backlash against conservatives. The primary elections were really about competence,” she said.
