What lessons does the success of Congresswoman Sharice Davids hold for the rest of Kansas?

Davids became Kansas’ only Democrat in Congress after defeating incumbent Kevin Yoder by nearly 10 points in 2018.  Democrats had taken notice after Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton narrowly won this district in 2016.  The Kansas City-area third district includes all of Johnson and Wyandotte Counties, and northern Miami County.

In the 1990s and early 2000s, earlier versions of it were represented by moderate Democrat Dennis Moore.
