In the latest installment of Senate Tracker, our weekly look at Senate races across the country, we turn to the Kansas Senate race

Incumbent Republican Senator Pat Roberts was expected to easily win re-election. But now he is running into trouble, because Democrat Chad Taylor is now suing to be taken off the ballot.

But Republicans want Taylor on the ballot, because of a challenge from a third candidate: independent Greg Orman.

Peggy Lowe, a reporter for KCUR in Kansas City, a member of the Here & Now Contributors Network joins us Jeremy Hobson to discuss the race.
