— Signs of a new administration are taking shape in the Kansas Statehouse.

Early Wednesday, crews began setting up transition offices for Republican Sam Brownback as he prepares to take the reins as governor.

Brownback defeated Democrat State Sen. Tom Holland Tuesday, ending eight years of Democratic control of the governor's office.

A private meeting between Brownback and Democratic Gov. Mark Parkinson was scheduled Wednesday afternoon to begin the transition. Parkinson named a three-member team to help with the switch to a new administration.

Brownback, who spent 16 years in Washington, was expected to hold a news conference Thursday to announce his transition team and timeline for naming his cabinet.
