Republicans looked to repeat their sweep of the four Kansas congressional districts, keeping the House seats in the party's hands for the second straight election cycle.

Topeka Republican Rep. Lynn Jenkins is seeking a third term Tuesday, facing Democrat and Topeka pastor Tobias Schlingensiepen in the 2nd district in eastern Kansas.

In the 4th District in south-central Kansas, GOP Rep. Mike Pompeo faced Democrat Robert Tillman. Third District GOP Rep. Kevin Yoder of Overland Park faced only Libertarian Joel Balam in his bid for a second term in the Kansas portion of the Kansas City metro area.

Rep. Tim Huelskamp is certain to be back in the 1st District seat of western Kansas. He faces no opposition on Tuesday after being unopposed in the August GOP primary.
