Kansas Election Results

From the Kansas Secretary of State:

Janet Waugh beat Jesse Hall 63% to 37%. Hall was pro-ID (see here and here.

John Bacon beat Harry McDonald 49% to 40%. Bacon is one of the pro-ID members of the school board who adopted the ID standards.

Sally Cauble beat Connie Morris 54% to 46%. Morris was also one of the pro-ID members of the school board.

Ken Willard beat Donna Viola 54 to 37%. Willard was one of the pro-ID members of the board.

Jana Shaver beat Brad Patzer 58% to 43%. Patzer is the son-in-law of Iris Van Meter. Van Meter was one of the pro-ID members of the board. She was not running for reelection.

So, of the five seats three were won by pro-science candidates. The ID standards were adopted by a vote of 6-4. The six were John Bacon, Connie Morris, Kathy Martin, Kenneth Willard, Iris Van Meter, and Steve Abrams. The four who voted against the pro-ID standards were Janet Waugh, Sue Gamble, Bill Wagnon, and Carol Rupe. Since Morris and Patzer won't be on the board that presumably would make the vote 4-6 in favor of the pro-ID standards.

As Nick Matzke points out this is the latest in a long string of defeats for the ID movement.
