  •  KS-Sen.. an Independent makes big headway (3+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Greg Orman, the Independent candidate in Kansas is running one of those campaigns I can't really describe.   Normally independents are joke candidates or also-rans.  

    But Greg Orman is a Princeton grad, a principle at Denali Investment LLC, a major job creator in Kansas and elsewhere as well as the person who founded environmental light solutions, etc.

    He's brought to bear something most Independents don't have.. a HUGE media campaign.  He's went up with billboards and TV ads this week and he has the money to keep it up.

    His budget dwarfs tea partier Milton Wolf, who is getting news inches and he has about 30X more cash on hand then Democrat candidate Chad Tayler.

    If the race in Kansas stays divided up, Greg Orman is going to have a very, very real shot to win this.
