    I saw a portion of this initially through Yahoo news clips. Found the rest of Rep. Jenkins (R-KS) address on YouTube:

    Seems like a sharp lady. Anyone from KS here who is familiar with her politics in general?

    She touts herself as a fiscal conservative and so far she has voted no on all the spending bills. As far as 2nd Amendment and abortion I don't know.

    She beat out Nancy Boyda (D) in Nov. mainly I feel because Boyda opposed war in Iraq. She walked out of a meeting where a Gen. came back to D.C. to tell congress about progress in Iraq. Her little baby fit did not go over well with all of us hay seeds and rednecks here in KS. However, to cover her ass right before she lost her seat to Lyn Jenkins, Boyda did not vote for the 1st. spending bill.

    All in all I would say Jenkins is a good egg.
