Newcomer, political survivor contest for 42nd Kansas House District

The 42nd House District race pits incumbent Republican Jim Karleskint, of Tonganoxie, against Democrat Thea Perry, of rural Tonganoxie. The 42nd District includes Eudora and western Leavenworth County. Karleskint, 71, is seeking his second term in the 42nd District seat. Running as a moderate in 2016, he defeated conservative incumbent Connie O’Brien, of Tonganoxie, in the primary and survived against Democrat Kara Reed in the general election. He turned back a tough challenge in the August primary from conservative Lance Neelly.
