Last week we posted Creationists on the Ballot: August 2010. We mentioned several election contests, but these are scheduled for today, 03 August 2010:
In the Kansas Republican primary for Governor, extreme creationist Joan Heffington is running against Sam Brownback. We’ve been told that Brownback is a creationist too. We don’t know if he is, but Heffington is by far the crazier of the two. See: Creationist in Kansas Governor’s Race.
Also in Kansas, two old-time, hard-core, flaming, full-blown creationists who were part of that state’s madness back in 2005 during the Kansas evolution hearings are running for re-election to the Kansas State Board of Education. The two creationists are John Bacon, who now represents District 3, and Kenneth Willard of District 7. We’ve posted about those races before, most recently here: Kansas Creationist School Board Update 24 Jul ’10.
In District 3, Republican incumbent John Bacon, creationist, is opposed by challenger Dennis George. George is preferable by far. In District 7, the GOP creationist incumbent, Kenneth Willard, is opposed by an artist, M.T. Liggett. Liggett is a bit unconventional, but he’s not a creationist so he’s our choice.
One of our operatives informed us of the website where election returns are posted and updated as results come in. We’ve added that to the red box at the start of this post. When the results are known, we’ll indicate the winners in the red box. So check back later to find out what happened.
