As in every other state that I have visited this fall, the issues are largely the same- encouraging voters to turn out despite the constant barrage of negative ads paid for by well-heeled, often secret donors. And then there are the ballot issues with serious consequences for the state. In Kansas City (Kan City, I heard one hip, young person call it tonight) it is a proposition to repeal the E tax which taxes workers who earn money in one city but live somewhere else. The League here is fighting this proposal, but lots of money from a proponent who wants to work in Kan City but live outside the city is fueling the race.
