    Kansas Supreme Court removes Democrat from Senate ballot


    By Alexandra Jaffe

    The Kansas Supreme Court ruled Thursday to grant Democrat Chad Taylorís request to be removed from the Kansas Senate ballot, issuing a blow to Sen. Pat Robertsís (R-Kan.) chances for reelection this fall as he faces a surging independent candidate.

    "Taylor's petition for writ of mandamus is granted, and [Kansas Secretary of State Kris] Kobach is ordered to comply with his clearly defined duty imposed by K.S.A. 26-306b(b). He shall not include Taylor's name on any ballots for the office of United States Senate for the general election on November 4, 2014,Ē the court wrote in its ruling.The courtís decision now removes an obstacle from self-funding independent Greg Ormanís path, making Roberts's path to reelection far more complicated. Polling has shown him vulnerable in a matchup, but still competitive. But with Taylor out of the race, polling has shown Orman surging ahead of Roberts.

    The GOP senator's campaign blasted the court's ruling.

    "Today, the Kansas Supreme Court deliberately, and for political purposes, disenfranchised over 65,000 voters. In a bow to Senators Claire McCaskill and Harry Reid, liberal activist Supreme Court justices have decided that if you voted in the Democrat Primary on August 5th, your vote does not matter, your voice does not matter, and you have no say in who should be on the ballot on Election Day. This is not only a travesty to Kansas voters, but itís a travesty to the judicial system and our electoral process," Roberts campaign manager said in a statement.

    "No matter who's on or off the ballot, Greg Orman is running as an Independent against the broken system in Washington that has failed Kansas and failed America. Kansas voters from across the political spectrum are fed up with the mess in Washington, and that's why Republicans, Democrats and Independents are supporting Independent Greg Orman for Senate," Orman campaign manager Jim Jonas said in a statement.
