To the editor:
The apparent difference that is causing a split in the Republican ranks in Kansas is easy enough to understand. The moderate Republican officeholders are interested in re-election. The extreme right wing, as exemplified by Mr. Brownback and Kobach, are motivated by dreams of gaining the Oval Office in the White House. They simply view this as an opportunity to gain national attention.
At least that is my opinion as to why Mr. Brownback gave up his safe seat in the U.S. Senate: because of the easier move to the office of the presidency. I firmly believe Mr. Brownback sees this job merely as a stepping stone to achieve his highest ambition: the office of the president of the United States of America.
