Kansas Democrats helped flip the house with the election of Rep. Sharice Davids in 2018, the first Native American woman to serve in Congress along with former Rep. Deb Haaland. Kansas will again see a key race in Democrats' efforts to retain the House majority in 2022.

What's at stake

Pandemic recovery. Last year, Kansas Republicans attempted to set aside a portion of the funds the state would receive from the American Rescue Plan to compensate businesses who say they suffered financial consequences due to COVID-19 closures and restrictions. Gov. Kelly vetoed the bill because it violated federal guidelines, but business owners continue to search for avenues to receive compensation, including suing the Kansas state government.

Health care. While Gov. Kelly has proposed Medicaid expansion legislation for the past two years, and again in her proposed budget this year, Kansas is still among 12 states to not expand Medicaid. Currently, thousands of Kansans fall into a “Medicaid gap” where their income is too high to qualify for state coverage and too low to qualify for federal coverage. It’s estimated that expanding Medicaid would offer health insurance to 165,000 Kansans.

Reproductive rights. With temporary shutdowns of abortion access in neighboring states at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as restrictive laws in states like Texas and Missouri, Kansas has become a safe haven for women seeking abortions both in-state and from several states in the region. However, in 2022, Kansans will be voting on a constitutional amendment already approved by the Republican-led state House and Senate to remove protections for abortion access.
