Schlafly endorses Tiahrt

"There's only about six candidates that I have the strength to go out and make a personal appearance for, and Todd is one of them. I think this race is so important," Schlafly told about 60 supporters at an ice cream social and Tiahrt rally at McFarland's Restaurant.

Tiahrt, Kansas' 4th District representative, is battling 1st District Congressman Jerry Moran for the GOP nomination to replace Sen. Sam Brownback, who is leaving his Senate seat to run for governor.
