Kansas congresswoman Sharice Davids
The race for Kansas' 3rd congressional district is tighter than it was in 2020, and no one knows that more than incumbent Rep. Sharice Davids. Finding herself in a more conservative district after Republican redistricting, Davids says the two key issues for voters are managing inflation and access to reproductive health care.
Rep. Sharice Davids has served Kansas' 3rd congressional district since being elected in 2018, but since then, the layout of her district has changed. With the addition of rural areas and the ousting of half of Wyandotte County, Davids is now representing — and running for re-election in — more conservative territory.
Davids acknowledges that she has some learning to do, but she's confident that her track record will win her another term in the U.S. House. KCUR's Brian Ellison spoke with Davids about lowering consumer costs and expanding abortion access after the recent Roe v. Wade decision and Kansas abortion amendment defeat.
