TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas voters have sent U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran back to Washington, D.C., to represent them.

The Republican incumbent easily defeated Democrat Patrick Wiesner, a Lawrence attorney, in the deep red state of Kansas.

Moran was first elected to the Senate in 2010. He previously represented the state’s 1st congressional district from 1997 to 2010.

Kansas hasn’t elected a Democrat to the U.S. Senate since 1932.
