On Scarborough Country, Jael Phelps granddaughter of The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr, was among three candidates challenging openly gay council member Tiffany Muller in a nonpartisan primary in Topkea, Kan.

Luckily Jael Phelps finished a distant fourth and Muller in second place. That allowed Muller to advance to an April 5 general election.
