Kobach ran his first commercial here recently, and the major theme was the need for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. That may appeal to his base but it's a darned funny way of reaching out to moderates and independents. I can think of other topics that would attract them more.

HMM Is Kansas MORE or LESS Conservative than Missouri?

73% of Missouri voters just voted to Ban Gay Marriage. If Kansas voters tend to be more Conservative than Missouri voters, then this is a winning issue for Kobach and an excellent way to get swing voters.

If a vote were held on an amendment to the Kansas Constitution to ban gay marriage I would expect it to pass with a margin similar to the margin in Kansas. Having said that, I think that it is far behind topics like the economy and taxes and the war and education in importance to the average 3rd District voter, especially independents and moderate Republicans, so I'm surprised that he chose to start with it. For him to make it the centerpiece of his legislative goals if elected makes no sense at all.

Make that "...margin in Missouri".
