Clint Hylton to Rep. Sam Graves: Time’s up, hoss

Last time Republican Congressman Sam Graves ran for re-election, his challenger was Kay Barnes — and the big-name, well-funded, supposedly formidable former Kansas City mayor got her ass kicked. If Barnes couldn’t beat Graves and his goon-powered machine, one political consultant told me, no one could.

One of Graves’ newest challengers? An insurance salesman from Excelsior Springs who’s never run for office. And who’s gay.

Is it a suicide mission, or is Clint Hylton serious?

“I have so many people ask me that question,” Hylton says.
