The behavior of Kansas Senate Republicans during a caucus meeting Thursday is beyond disappointing.

It’s cynical. It’s mendacious. And it should be disqualifying for some who hope to lead the people of Kansas in the future.

To recap, senators grilled Majority Leader Jim Denning over his advocacy for a Medicaid expansion compromise he reached with Gov. Laura Kelly. He and Kelly appeared together in Wichita this week to stump for the legislation. His peers all but accused him of working with the enemy and damaging their election prospects.
