Wu was outspoken and maintained some of the teachers of the church which included his desire to eliminate evolution from the school’s teachings and install creationism.

Campbell won easily 71-29 ending the challenger’s political ambitions for now.

“I’m happy I have four more years to work for our children. That’s all I wanted to do,” Campbell said.

Republicans, including Gov. Sam Brownback, disavowed Wu in June, and Democrats worked to make sure voters knew about his identification with Westboro Baptist. Wu said he didn’t have the campaign resources to counter Campbell’s ads making an issue of his ties to the church.

“I don’t see where that has anything to do with public education. It is what it is,” he said.

“I feel like I missed a few people, but I’m pleased with the margin of victory,” Campbell said. “I think a lot of people voted for him going down the ‘R’ list and didn’t know anything about him.”
