Democratic Senate Candidate Bollier | Ethics Of Debate & Voting
State Sen. Barbara Bollier would be the first Democrat to represent Kansas in the U.S. Senate since 1939, and the Ethics Professors consider a political candidate's obligation to debate their opponent.
Segment 1, beginning at 4:21: Will Kansas voters send a Democrat to the U.S. Senate?
The big political news out of the Sunflower State this year is that a Democrat might win an open U.S. Senate seat. That hasn’t happened since the 1930s, and is supposedly the longest losing streak for a party anywhere in the country. Barbara Bollier is the Democratic candidate. Her opponent is Roger Marshall and polls now show the race is too close to call.
