What is With Kansas?

A Kansas state Senator, Kay O'Connor, has announced that she is running for the Kansas Secretary of State. Why do I care?

Well, because in 2001 she was reported telling people that she wouldn't have voted for the 19th Amendment, and does not support it. (In case you forgot, the 19th Amendment gave women the right to vote.)

Is it safe to assume that she will not be seeking many votes from women? Do you think that revoking women's sufferage will be part of her platform? Would it be before or after her commitment to stop the teaching of evolution in Kansas schools?
