2014 Election Results

2014 Elections

While we here at Homestead on the Range make no claim to be political experts, we recognize that politics is an issue that deeply affects Kansas residents, particularly those who run their own businesses.  Accordingly, we plan to report the results of races key to our state.  No analysis, just the facts.

The results of last night’s election are in.  Here are the statistics:
