Topeka Republican gubernatorial candidate Sam Brownback will unveil his “Road Map for Kansas,” on a four-day, 29-city tour next week.
But a stop in Lawrence isn’t on the map.
Sherriene Jones-Sontag, a spokeswoman for the Brownback campaign, said Lawrence wasn’t left off intentionally. She said Brownback will be making appearances later in the campaign in Lawrence.
Brownback, a U.S. senator, faces Democrat Tom Holland, a state senator from Baldwin City, in the Nov. 2 election.
Jones-Sontag said Brownback is a big fan of Lawrence and Kansas University. He and his wife both have law degrees from KU.
Brownback has said his “Road Map for Kansas” will outline what he plans to do if elected governor.
He and his running mate, Jeff Colyer, a state senator from Overland Park, will hold a news conference Monday in Topeka with many of the contributors who have worked on the “Road Map.”
Then on Wednesday, Brownback and Colyer will go on a four-day bus tour to unveil more details of the plan.
The tour starts in Topeka and hits Wamego, Manhattan, Junction City, Abilene, Salina, Russell and Hays on the first day. On Thursday, WaKeeney, Oakley, Colby, Goodland, Sharon Springs, Tribune, Syracuse and Garden City are on the schedule.
On Friday, the tour will visit Cimarron, Dodge City, Greensburg, Pratt, Hutchinson, Colwich and Maize. The tour will wrap up Saturday with stops in El Dorado, Eureka, Yates Center, Iola, Fort Scott and Stilwell.
