A minister, an attorney and a farmer offer diverse backgrounds for Kansas Democrats in the Aug. 7 primary in the state's 2nd Congressional District. The winner will face Republican incumbent Lynn Jenkins this fall in a district that looks different than it did two years ago.

Three federal judges drew new House districts after lawmakers failed to complete the task during the last legislative session. The 2nd District saw some of the most significant changes, shedding Riley County and Fort Riley and adding all of Douglas County and the city of Lawrence.

Democrats Scott Barnhart of Ottawa, Robert Eye of Lawrence and Tobias Schlingensiepen of Topeka are seeking to reclaim the seat the party lost to Jenkins in 2008.
