Kansas Congresswoman Nancy Boyda says she tried to prove that she could win re-election to the House without running attack adds. But instead, the defeated Kansas Democrat says her race against Republican Lynn Jenkins showed that the easiest way to win is by saying bad things, and lots of them, about your opponent.

And the list of names to replace Jenkins as state treasurer is growing shorter. Two more Democrats say they don't want to be state treasurer.

The Kansas Department of Transportation could be cutting back on salt this winter.

The Kansas City Chiefs dropped a 30-20 decision to the New Orleans Saints at Arrowhead Stadium.
