It's no secret Susan Wagle has her eye on a higher politcal office, most likely that of U.S. Senator or governor, and is using Senator Barnett's campaign to add to her Rolodex and name identifcation.
According to our sources, the bulk of her time is spent at her home in Wichita while Senator Barnett is on the campaign trail. She is rarely seen at events and attends events only when she feels like it or she sees it as benefiting her future political aspirations.
One of our sources speculates that Wagle is not active in the campaign because she turns off too many voters and has too much baggage to be a benefit to the Barnett campaign. A recent comment on the previous post says it best:
"Those who have their shorts in a twist over this blog have obviously never spent 30 seconds in Topeka or around the legislature. Wagle is widely disliked by her peers, conservatives included. They actually enjoy dealing with Kay O'Connor over Wagle... "
It's difficult to fathom Wagle thinking she has a shot at any elective office outside of her home senate district, but those who know her say she has little grasp of reality and probably thinks she can get elected to any office she chooses.
