With 50 percent of the vote in, incumbent Republican Ryun is trailing Nancy Boyda. Frankly, without the Bush Factor, I don't see how Boyda could be doing this good. Although Kansas City Star reporter Steve Kraske says that he has heard some grumbling about Ryun lacking in constituent service, that hasn't been a campaign theme.
Boyda went into this race with almost no money and no support from the national party. Stay tuned. This would be big if Ryun goes down.
