When they said to self-isolate, the Kansas GOP must have heard “self-immolate.”

Those of you who merely want a secure and prosperous nation — with a limited and accountable government, and judges and justices who adhere to the Constitution rather than the prevailing political winds — take note: Kansas Republicans seem hellbent on losing retiring Pat Roberts’ U.S. Senate seat, which they’ve held for nearly a century. And that could very well tip control of the chamber, and much if not all of Washington, D.C., to Democrats.

You can get pumped up about voting for Donald Trump again, but if he loses the Senate along with the House, there’s not much point. Most of his agenda, notably to include conservative jurists who respect your right to be largely left alone, will hit a brick wall. That’s how important the Senate is.
