Kansas Senate President Susan Wagle just hijacked what looked like a promising and productive legislative session.

Her desire to enhance her U.S. Senate primary resume with Republican conservatives is putting her thirst for political power ahead of the needs of Kansans.

That’s a difficult thing to write. And we would hope that the Senate president is better than that. But her actions since the state House of Representatives failed to reach the two-thirds majority needed to send a constitutional amendment about abortion to voters suggest otherwise.
