KANSAS’S 2ND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT (open)

November 3, 2018 by TWN Staff

Current polling: Paul Davis (D) 41, Steve Watkins (R) 37 (NYT/Siena, 10/30)

Why this race matters: In deep red Kansas, this race has emerged as a potential bright spot for Democrats. Despite Republicans spending against Davis early and often, Paul Davis has maintained a slight lead over his Republican opponent. While Davis was ultimately unsuccessful as the Democratic candidate in Kansas’ 2014 gubernatorial election, he won the vote in this district by 6 points. Democrats are increasingly bullish about Davis’ race, and it will definitely be one to watch on election night.
