3rd party candidates could tip key Senate races

FILE - In this July 28, 2014, file photo, Greg Orman, right, an independent candidate for the U.S. Senate in Kansas, discusses his campaign during a news conference, as his wife, Sybil, watches to his left in Topeka, Kan. Third-party candidates rarely win Senate races, but they could play significant roles in several key races this year. And one of them has already helped drive the Democratic nominee from the Senate race in Kansas. Democratic nominee Chad Taylor left the race after seeing independent candidate Greg Orman attract more money. Republicans worry that Orman may be able to consolidate opposition to three-term GOP Sen. Pat Roberts. (AP Photo/John Hanna, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — A pizza deliveryman in North Carolina, a “libertarian cop” in Kentucky and an Alaska candidate — but not the one who was expected — hope to do what a Kansas businessman did this week: shake up Senate races as third-party candidates, an often-dismissed lot.
