Kansas Supreme Court puts off consideration of a lawsuit concerning the U.S. Senate ballot in Kansas

Chief Justice Lawton Nuss sent the lawsuit to Shawnee County District Court for further consideration. His decision is likely to delay any final ruling for weeks, making it impossible for Democrats to provide a nominee before November ballots are locked in place.
