Kansan here. We VERY MUCH consider ourselves Midwesterners. We consider ourselves to be the most Midwestern of Midwesterners. Kansas has a proud farming heritage but strong rural areas. We’re a red state, but traditionally, we’ve voted for moderate republicans. (Until Sam Brownback.) We just rejected hard right bigot KKKris KKKobach. During the Civil War we were known as the Free State, far different than our slave-holding neighbors in Missouri. Thanks!
