Is Lynn Jenkins in trouble, too?

Now Republicans are worried about Kansas Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins.

Politico reports that senior members of GOP leadership are putting out calls seeking donations for Jenkins. Internal polls shows the 2nd District incumbent leading in a race that remains surprisingly close.

Jenkins is a member of House Speaker John Boehner’s leadership team.

It doesn’t help that Sen. Pat Roberts and Gov. Sam Brownback are in tough races and that the political environment in Kansas remains unstable.

Jenkins is facing Democrat Margie Wakefield, a lawyer from Lawrence.
