The 2nd congressional district of Kansas will hold an election for the U.S. House of Representatives on November 4, 2014.

Kansas is one of 12 states to use a strictly closed primary process, in which the selection of a party's candidates in an election is limited to registered party members.[4][5][6]

Heading into the election the incumbent is Lynn Jenkins (R), who was first elected in 2008.

Kansas' 2nd Congressional District coveres most of the eastern part of the state, except for the core of the Kansas City Metropolitan Area. The district encompasses less than a quarter of the state. The capital of Topeka is located within this district.[7]
