Dennis Moore's 3rd District opponent holds potential wake with Dick Cheney
By Diane Silver
Today the Kansas GOP graced my in-box with this invitation. How I got on their list I'll never know, but to the subject at hand: A moment of silence for the campaign of Republican State Sen. Nick Jordan, a Republican challenging Democratic incumbent Dennis Moore.
The last time Cheney came to Kansas to help a Congressional candidate, he "helped" Jim Ryun right out of his seat.
I can't seem to dig up a poll showing Cheney's approval rating in Kansas. However, nationally, the veep is only rated favorably by 20 to 30 percent of the people. George W. Bush himself could only muster a 38 percent Kansas approval number in a SurveyUSA poll taken Nov. 9-Nov.11.
I am not a huge fan of Moore, but I have to admit that he has to be better than anyone endorsed by Cheney.
