District 1

Incumbent Republican Tim Huelskamp defeated a little-known opponent, former school administrator Alan LaPolice, in the Republican primary election by a closer than expected margin of 55% to 45% in the 2014 elections. Because of this, his poor relationship with House Republican leadership and his support for cutting farm subsidies, which cost him the support of the Kansas Farm Bureau and Kansas Livestock Association in 2014, he was thought to be vulnerable to a primary challenge.[1][2] In the primary election on August 2, 2016, Huelskamp was defeated 57%-43%.[3]
