KS-2 top target of NRCC

Chris Cillizza of The Washington Post recently confirmed seats that are being targeted by the NRCC as part of their ROMP (Regain Our Majority) program and KS District 2 makes the list.
You can read the whole story here.

I've provided a partial list below of currently-held Democratic seats that are being targeted, because although we have territory that will have to be defended, we also need to be on offense, and that means targeting seats currently held by the Dems. Jim Ryun's fundraising numbers for this last quarter are incredible and it demonstrates his seriousness in winning his old seat back. Lynn Jenkins is also an incredible fundraiser (her numbers should be out soon) and she would beat Boyda as well. I just hope our great Republican candidates remain civil and avoid the temptation to spend thousands of dollars attacking eachother in primary squabbling.

Democratic-held House seats being targeted by the GOP:

1. CA 11th--held by Jerry McNerney
2. FL 16th--held by Tim Mahoney (Mark Foley's old seat)
3. GA 8th--held by Jim Marshall
4. IL 8th--held by Melissa Bean
5. KS 2nd--held by Nancy Boyda
6. PA 10th--held by Chris Carney
7. TX 22--held by Nick Lampson
