Description On September 3, 2014 Democratic nominee Chad Taylor dropped out in favor of Independent Greg Orman.

Greg Orman says he will caucus with whichever party wins a majority in the Senate in 2014.

Partisan GOP Secretary of State is not allowing Taylor's name off the ballot. The ruling is being challenged.

Kansas Supreme Court ruled that Taylor's name should be removed from ballot on Sep. 18
