Dennis Moore

Dennis Moore (born Nov. 8, 1945), is an American politician, and a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives since 1999, representing Kansas's 3rd congressional district.


Moore was born in 1945 in Anthony, Kansas. He attended the University of Kansas and received a Juris Doctor degree from Washburn University. He served in the U.S. Army before becoming Assistant Attorney General of Kansas. After a period in private practice, he was elected District Attorney in Johnson County, serving in that capacity from 1977 to 1989.

He was first elected to the United States House in 1998 defeating the Republican incumbent, Vince Snowbarger. In 2004, Moore defeated law professor Kris Kobach in the general election who accused Moore of being a left-wing radical out of touch with his Kansas constituency.

In the 2006 Congressional Election, Moore successfully defended his seat against Republican Chuck Ahner, winning by a much larger margin than he had in the past. Moore, a Blue Dog Democrat since coming to Congress, is the policy co-chair for the Blue Dogs in the 110th Congress. Moore is also a member of the New Democrat Coalition.
