Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger has endorsed U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback for governor in 2010.
Praeger, a longtime Lawrence political figure, is considered one of the most moderate Republican officeholders in the state. Brownback is considered a conservative Republican.
“Sam will work diligently to promote job growth and high quality education, the cornerstones of a vibrant Kansas economy,” Praeger said.
She added, “I’ve had the honor of working with Sam on both state and national issues. He is a dear friend, and I am proud to endorse his candidacy for governor.”
Praeger has said she would seek her third four-year term as insurance commissioner in 2010.
