I was not aware Kansas Democrats had any leadership, I thought that has been our problem all along.

I guess there was no one qualified from Kansas. I guess it is okay for the Democratic Party and its leaders to critique Governor Brownback for hiring people from out of state .... and then hire their executive director from out of state ..... let's go through the list

No Democrat from Kansas was qualified? What does he know about Kansas and its people? No one from Kansas was willing to take the job?

You should probably be more concerned that the leader/chairwoman of the Kansas GOP spends 90% of her time in Missouri.

The chair of the Kansas Democrats is obsessed with getting more money out of everyone for the government that at least three big public relations opportunities have been handed to her on silver platters and she remained oblivious to them.
