Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn on Wednesday endorsed Republican Rep. Jerry Moran’s bid for Kansas Senate even though Coburn’s endorsement means he will be taking sides in an intra-party battle.

“His election to the United State Senate would be a tremendous benefit to those of us fighting against the bailouts and irresponsible spending in Washington, D.C.,” Coburn said of Moran, according to a fundraising letter Thursday. “I give him my strongest endorsement for the U.S. Senate.” Coburn’s home state borders Kansas to the south.  

Moran, of Kansas’ 1st District, faces a hotly contested primary battle against House colleague Todd Tiahrt of the 4th District for their party’s nomination.
