Among the panelists: Dave Helling from The Star, Burd Loomis from KU, Washburn’s Bob Beatty, Kelly Arnold of the Kansas Republican Party and Joan Wagnon of the Kansas Democratic Party.

A national panel convenes at 2 p.m. Thursday for the first of three sessions. Among the panelists there are Dan Balz of The Washington Post, John McLaughlin of McLaughlin & Associates, Alex Isenstadt of Politico and Robert Collins of the National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee.
