Sherow crosses party lines to back Orman

In a rather unusual move, Democratic congressional nominee Jim Sherow has crossed party lines to endorse an independent candidate for the U.S. Senate.

The former Manhattan mayor, who is now the Democratic candidate in the First Congressional District, says he believes independent Greg Orman has the best chance to defeat Republican senator Pat Roberts in November.

That puts him at odds with his party’s nominee in the U.S. senate race, Shawnee County district attorney Chad Taylor.
