District 1

Republican Tim Huelskamp has represented the district since being elected in 2010. Huelskamp was re-elected in 2012 with 100% of the vote, as no candidate filed to run against him.

Alan LaPolice, a former school administrator, lost against incumbumnt Huelskamp in the Republican primary. Jim Sherow, city co-commissioner and former Mayor of Manhattan, successfully received the Democratic nomination, defeating Bryan Whitney, a member of the 2013 class of Wichita State University who hardly campaigned.

Unlike the other three congressional districts in Kansas, none of the candidates received endorsements from the local Kansas Farm Bureau and Kansas Livestock Association. The president of the Farm Bureau described this inability to endorse candidates as "reflect[ing] views at the grassroots level."[2]
