GOP Kansas Senate map creates 2 districts with 2 incumbents

Republicans are moving to redraw the boundaries of Kansas Senate districts so that a GOP and Democratic senator would face running against each other. 

Their map also would have the Redistricting Committee’s chair drawn into a district with a GOP colleague. 

The chamber expects to vote on a map next week. 

The GOP plan puts Redistricting Chair Rick Wilborn of McPherson into the district of GOP Sen. Michael Fagg of El Dorado. 

That suggests Wilborn doesn’t plan to seek reelection this year, but his office is not commenting. 

Republican Sen. Beverly Gossage of Eudora would be in a district with Democratic Sen. Tom Holland of Baldwin City.
