Johnson County Can Expect New Voice In Topeka From Newly Elected Reps
December 19, 2010 – Politics in Topeka will be whole new ball game when the legislature comes back next year.
There will be a Republican Governor for the first time in 8 years. Both the House and Senate will again have Republican majorities, but with more Tea Party conservatives among them.
Nowhere did the November elections have more of an impact than in Johnson County. The delegation now has one lone Democrat, where it was once a mix of Democrats, and moderate and conservative Republicans.
Several weeks before the legislature goes back to work - there's a lot of uncertainty and concern about how the newly elected officials will alter the voice from Johnson County.
