Kansas Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Tim Owens, left, an Overland Park Republican, discusses drunken driving legislation during a caucus of fellow GOP senators at the Statehouse in Topeka, Kan. Frustrated by their inability to achieve some policy goals, conservatives in Republican states are turning against moderate members of their own party, trying to drive them out of state legislatures to clear the way for reshaping government across a wide swath of mid-America controlled by the GOP. A moderate GOP incumbent, Owens is one of the targets.
