Could Sebelius Win in Kansas?

Harry Enten is doubtul that Kathleen Sebelius (D) could win the Senate race in Kansas she's reportedly weighing.

"The last time a Democrat was elected to the Senate from Kansas was 1932. That's not only the longest drought for the party, it's by far the longest winless streak. (The next longest drought for Democrats is in Wyoming, where they haven't won a Senate seat since 1970.) Democrats have lost 29 consecutive Senate races in Kansas, and they just don't win federal statewide races. Since 1940, Lyndon Johnson, in 1964, was the only Democratic presidential nominee to win in the Sunflower State."
