— Gov. Sam Brownback, U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Topeka, and others will hit the road this week to get out the vote for Republican candidates.

The "Road Map for Growth" tour will start at 8 a.m. Thursday in Topeka and head to Leawood, Fort Scott, Frontenac, Pittsburg, Columbus and Independence.

Others on the trip will be Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, and Kansas Republican Party Chairwoman Amanda Adkins.

On Friday, the tour stops in Arkansas City, Winfield, Wichita, Hays and Salina.

Weather permitting, Brownback and some others will travel by motorcycle.

The trip is being funded by campaigns or the state GOP, officials said.

Republicans are the biggest spenders in the history of this nation. On the campaign trail and in the halls of congress.

Big Government = Big Spending = reckless beyond belief

Boston Globe endorsed Obama

Simply because the Boston Globe backs a democrat does not make a liberal newspaper. Obama is no liberal!

Obama comes off as a moderate republican...... like Bill Clinton.

There are many reasons to not support Romney. Number one he has no plans of his own just simply a replay of radical right wing conservative politics.

I will start voting for the GOP again when they officially drop the anti-abortion issue and get back to the traditional GOP value of strong individual rights.

Enjoy your time while you can, time is against you! As Tina Fey said all they gray skinned GOP old men are a dying breed. Racist attitudes, rights suppression, voter suppression, anti-women, anti-minority issues, anti-environmental issues are all problems that will come home to roost for the Olde GOP. The population growth is in a direction that does not "cotton" to the "gray skinned folks". Moderate Republicans like myself will relish the day that the party returns to it's former self, although I have my doubts.

My comment you quoted was not so much a statement about Romney, but more about our C-Street Governor. Rockchalk 1968 & 1971

Sure would be interesting to see how many Blue Dogs there are, in the USA, since the Crazies took over what used to be the Grand Old Party.

rockchalk: We'll see about minority statusin the Presidental election come the night of November 6th. Here in Kansas even us moderate Republicans see the need to rid ourselves of right wing dittoheaded fundamentalists; it's just going to take time and a return the State to sanity.

While Democrats sit home sucking their thumbs and lamenting their minority status.

What a stupid thing to do but then considering their mentality and intellect am not surprised.
