    Some carried signs. Some carried flags, babies or even a toy poodle wearing campaign regalia.

    But the 1,000 or so people who came Sunday afternoon to the Statehouse steps in Topeka were united in carrying one message.

    “Nothing will change until we change Congress,” Democrat Nancy Boyda said, encouraging the cheering crowd to say it with her.

    Boyda, who pollsters claim has a good chance of unseating the Republican incumbent, U.S. Rep. Jim Ryun, in Tuesday’s election, said before the rally her own polls show she is 9 percentage points ahead in the Kansas 2nd Congressional

    And a bit more:

    Several Lawrence residents were at the rally, including Ed Scheurich.

    “My only New Year’s resolution was to get rid of Ryun,” Scheurich said.

    Another Lawrence resident, Robin Gingerich, said the rally for Boyda went beyond partisan politics.

    “I think Nancy Boyda’s slogan, ‘Had enough?’ is exactly right,” Gingerich said. “We need to change the balance of power.”

    Tom Mersmann, another Lawrence resident, agreed.

    For some odd reason, I can't post this in Kos's front page diary, so if someone wants to forward this info, I'd be grateful.
