TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Republican Roger Marshall won the most competitive U.S. Senate race in Kansas in decades, while President Donald Trump carried the state again, as expected.
The marquee race in Tuesday’s election was the Senate contest between the two term-congressman Marshall and Democratic state Sen. Barbara Bollier in what was the most expensive political contest in state history. Marshall and his allies attacked Bollier for her strong support of abortion rights and gun control measures. Bollier was among the Democratic candidates around the country who attracted millions of dollars in contributions from outside their home states as the party tried to take control of the Senate.
