Incumbent Rep. Roger Marshall was re-elected to represent Kansas' 1st Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives.

Marshall cruised to victory over his Democratic opponent Alan LaPolice. He picked up 68 percent of the vote to LaPolice's 32 percent.

Marshall, a physician from Great Bend, entered Congress in 2016 after narrowly defeating three-term Rep. Tim Huelskamp in the primary, as well as LaPolice in the general election.

This was LaPolice's third election defeat in the 1st district. He lost a close Republican primary race to Huelskamp in 2014. In 2016, he ran an unsuccessful independent campaign against Marshall.
