Kansas Democrats accuse Yoder, dark money group of meddling in primary

WASHINGTON -- “We don’t need more Obama-Sanders progressives.”

That’s a line in a new ad branding Democratic congressional candidate Brent Welder as “too progressive for Kansas” — an ad paid for by a dark-money nonprofit tied to billionaire Joe Ricketts, whose group Ending Spending has spent about $2 million this election cycle backing Republicans.

The ad began airing Friday in the Kansas City area, just days before a six-way, too-close-to-call Democratic primary in Kansas’ 3rd congressional district, where Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder of Kansas is fighting to hang on for a fifth term.

Two of Welder’s Democratic opponents on Friday accused Yoder and Ricketts of meddling in their party’s primary by trying to boost a candidate who would be easier for Yoder to beat in November.

The winner of Tuesday’s Democratic primary will battle Yoder in a district where Democrat Hillary Clinton narrowly beat Donald Trump in 2016.

1. This is one interesting race

Based on Twitter addiction, this makes total sense.
Sudden increase in new users with few followers attacking Emily's List and harmless aspects of other candidates.
