Critics of Republican Gov. Sam Brownback sense that races this fall for the Kansas Legislature represent their last chance to slow the state's march to the right.

Democrats have attempted to make legislative contests a referendum on the conservative governor and massive income tax cuts he signed into law earlier this year.

Brownback's allies are looking to win commanding majorities for GOP conservatives.

The GOP right is all but certain to control both chambers after the Nov. 6 election. However, conservatives are hoping for a two-thirds majority in the Senate that would make it easier for them to pursue changes in the Kansas Constitution.

If Democrats gain seats, there's a better chance that they and GOP moderates still can check Brownback's ambitions.
