7. but in that case, there is at least a name on the ballot

In the last election, Herbert got 55,000 votes or about 31%.

In Kansas in 2010 we had two races, in the 3rd and the 4th where the Democratic candidate had a million to spend, and still only got 37% of the vote. Meanwhile in the 2nd, we had a candidate who spent next to nothing and got 32% of the vote. The Kansas first is basically unwinnable for Democrats, but still 40,000 people should have somebody to vote for on election day for Congress instead of having no choice.
