Davis Praises GOP Primary Loser Tiahrt

A Facebook post by former Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R-KS) about a supportive phone message from gubernatorial candidate Paul Davis (D) is drawing mixed reaction from conservatives, the Wichita Eagle reports.

Tiahrt lost a primary bid to regain the congressional seat he once held. Davis is challenging Gov. Sam Brownback in November.

Davis left the following message on Tiahrt's answering machine: "I've been meaning to give you a call here for a week or so. I just wanted to tell you I'm sorry the election results did not turn out as hoped. I've been sort of rooting for you from afar here. And it sounds like you worked really hard and ran a good campaign."
