Rep. Lynn Jenkins Drops a Challenger, Sen. Jerry Moran Gains One at the Filing Deadline


Wingerter, Justin, The Topeka Capital-Journal


As the state's June 1 filing deadline for candidates came and went Wednesday, a U.S. House candidate dropped out and a U.S. Senate candidate stepped in.

Mike Pryor, 76, withdrew Tuesday from a Democratic primary in the state's 2nd congressional district. With the exit of Pryor, a Bernie Sanders organizer from Lawrence, the Democratic nomination will likely go to Britani Potter, a school board member from Ottawa.

U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran received a primary challenger on Wednesday, the final day for filings.

Smith served on the Osawatomie City Council and unsuccessfully ran for a seat on the Kansas Legislature before her 2014 Senate run, according to her biography on a tea party website.

Smith's filing leaves five people running for U.S. Senate. In addition to Smith and Moran are Democrats Patrick Wiesner and Monique Singh, plus Libertarian Robert Garrard. …
