MISSION, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Democrat Sharice Davids has held on to her Kansas City-area congressional seat. Davids overcame Republican attacks about crime and the economy and new district boundaries designed by Republicans to make it harder for her to win reelection. Davids defeated challenger Amanda Adkins, who had followed other Republicans in focusing on pocketbook issues and trying to tie the Democratic incumbent to President Joe Biden. Davids and other Democrats aggressively attacked Adkins for supporting an anti-abortion amendment to the Kansas Constitution that voters rejected in August. The state’s three Republican U.S. House members were expected to win reelection.

Also Tuesday night, Republicans Tracey Mann, Ron Estes and Jake LaTurner won reelection bids to continue serving in the U.S. House. Man represents Kansas 1st Congressional District, “The Big First,” covering all or part of 64 counties in western and northern Kansas. Estes, represents the 4th Congressional District that includes south central Kansas and the Wichita area. LaTurner represents Kansas’ 2nd Congressional District that covers most of the eastern part of the state except for the core of the Kansas City Metropolitan area.
