Congressional career

With rural populations on the decline throughout the nation, issues unique to rural communities are becoming less understood... Moran works with colleagues to construct legislation allowing Kansas farms and ranches to remain viable. Moran has been recognized for his agriculture efforts by many organizations. In 2004, he received the top legislative award from three of the nation's largest agriculture groups: the American Farm Bureau, the National Farmer's Union and the National Association of Wheat Growers."[1]

2006 elections

In 2006, the Democrats nominated John G. Doll to face Moran in his November 2006 bid for reelection. (See U.S. congressional elections in 2006) [2] Moran retained his seat.
