Lynn Jenkins is a regular David Blaine, she can disappear before your very eyes.
One minute, she's running for Congress, albeit poorly, and the next minute it's like she wasn't even there.
Wait. What's that? You don't even know who she is?
Don't worry, lots of people don't. Anyway, Lynn is this smiley woman who served a term in the Kansas House and half a term in the Kansas Senate before bouncing up the political ladder to State Treasurer in 2002. Now she's running in the Republican primary against Jim Ryun.
Now that we're all on the same page as to who Lynn Jenkins is, it makes you wonder how the Hell people who aren't fortunate enough to read this blog are supposed to figure it out.
Her opponent in the primary, Jim Ryun, "served" 10 years in the seat before GETTING served by Nancy Boyda in 2006, so people already pretty well know who he is (which may end up being more of a liability than a benefit to Mr. Ryun) but even he has been on TV with for almost two weeks now in the two major media markets in the district.
So what of Lynn Jenkins, who's own campaign admits that name recognition is the biggest hurdle over which they must leap to have any chance in the primary.
Nowhere to be seen, that's where.
It almost makes you wonder if she's decided to punt this campaign and focus on 2010.
Good luck with that.
