WATCH: Will This Ad Spur a GOP Victory in Kansas?


What’s the matter with Kansas? Republicans are suddenly worried about the special election in Kansas’ 4th congressional district. Ron Estes is running for the seat Mike Pompeo vacated to head the CIA.

President Trump has put his prestige on the line with a series of robocalls urging his supporters to get out and vote for Estes. It’s a district he won last November by 27 points, so that should be powerful.

But the institutional GOP has another ace in the hole: abortion. According to The Hill:

In a last-minute effort to boost Estes’s chances, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) spent nearly $100,000 for Estes with TV and digital ads. In the TV ad, Republicans cast Thompson as ‘too extreme for Kansas,’ claiming that he supports ‘late-term abortions.’

Abortion is a winning issue for the GOP. Sometimes even the GOP recognizes that.
