Wolfe Moore, Burroughs re-elected to Kansas House


KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- While Democrats had a bad night in Kansas and nationally, two local Democrats were victorious in their races on Tuesday night.

Kansas House Rep. Kathy Wolfe Moore defeated Earl Freeman in a rematch from two years ago. She won 62 percent of the vote, while Freeman won just 34 percent. Libertarian candidate Jeff Caldwell earned 4 percent.

Wolfe Moore represents the 36th District.

Fellow Democrat Tom Burroughs had a tougher race.

He defeated Republican Sue Adams by a 51-49 percent margin. Burroughs won 2,673 votes, while Adams won 2,525 votes.

Burroughs and Wolfe Moore will serve in the minority in the Kansas House next year, as Republicans still maintain and overwhelming majority of House seats.
