Somewhere, over the rainbow, a blog is born. A blog for Kansas. A blog for America. A blog by a reporter with a difficult-to-pronounce last name. But most importantly, a blog that is AMERICA'S ONLY PLACE dedicated to the vital intersection of politics and Sunflowers. The Heartland gods nod in wise approval.

Kobach speaks

The NRCC just announced that KS-3rd District challenger Kris Kobach will speak at the Republican National Convention on Monday, probably early afternoon. Prime-time? Uh-uh, but any face time at that podium's a coup for a challenger. Kobach survived a tight primary against 2002 nominee Adam Taff to challenge incumbent Rep. Dennis Moore of Lenexa, the only Dem in the KS delegation.

Looks like he may be taking the podium after Larry Diedrich of South Dakota, who lost a special election to Democrat Stephanie Herseth in June and is trailing her in polls for the regular electino this fall.
