Will Steve Boyda run for Senate while Nancy runs for re-election?
(KC Star) Steve Kraske commentary: The buzz: The first potential Democratic opponent to Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas surfaced last week, and his last name has a familiar ring: Steve Boyda. That's right. The husband of the current freshman congresswoman, Nancy Boyda, is said to be eyeballing the race. Steve Boyda's response: No comment.
No comment? Word on the street is, Steve would LOVE to run for office. After tasting the good life as Congressman 1a for the Second District, Steve may not be able to pass up the chance to run. Some had thought Gov. Sebelius would take a crack at Roberts with Parkinson firmly in the LG slot, but count me as one who believes that while Sebelius would clearly be the Democrats' best hope, she won't run because it's too much of a risk (particularly of being tapped as a VP candidate if Hillary falters for the Dem nomination).
As for the Steve and Nancy show breaking up to run separate campaigns, only time would tell how that would look.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
