Coronavirus, Trade Shape Race Between Estes And Lombard In Kansas' 4th District

Republican Congressman Ron Estes, left, and Democrat Laura Lombard are in the race for the 4th District seat.

In south-central Kansas, Republican U.S. Rep. Ron Estes is seeking a second full term representing a district he won easily in 2018 with almost 60% of the vote.

His message to voters: "Keep Kansas red."

But his Democratic challenger, trade specialist Laura Lombard, says this year's election is much different — because the issues are much different. And she's hopeful she can turn the 4th Congressional District blue for the first time in more than two decades.

Here's where Estes and Lombard stand on some of the biggest issues in this year's election.
