In Chaotic Election Year, Independents Look to Sneak Up the Middle

“Welcome to our world,” said Greg Orman, a Kansas businessman who made an unsuccessful independent Senate bid in 2014. The fact “that the primary process is biased has opened the eyes of voters.”

Orman is now working with a group called the Centrist Project that wants to tackle Washington gridlock by electing more independents to the Senate this year. The organization, which helps raise money for Capitol Hill hopefuls, supported a handful of independent Senate campaigns during the 2014 midterm elections, including Orman in Kansas and Larry Pressler, a former U.S. Senator, in South Dakota
