Boxing firm has suit against Kansas Senate hopeful Orman

They saw "lawsuit" and saw an opportunity to smear. Need to be careful with these kinds of things. Stacey Campfield, a Tennessee legislator, is currently embroiled in a defamation lawsuit stemming from the 2008 election where he accused a Democratic candidate of being involved in multiple drug arrests.(It wasn't the candidate but a man with the same name.) It was initially thrown out of court but recently an appeals court revived it. According to the appeals court, the judge that wrote the decision had this to say:<br>
“Politics may be a rough and tumble endeavor.But, contrary to the vintage Cole Porter song, ‘Anything Goes’ will not suffice when it comes to publishing factual falsehoods about political rivals.”

Challenged by the center, Brownback sticks to hard-right message

The moderate backlash is REAL. And what is Brownback's response? To double down. It will lose him the mansion.

Editorial: Unflattering poll

This is more than just "unflattering". It represents the lives of real human beings with estimated deaths of around 15,000 Kansans the result. Perhaps if they had changed their names to "Fetus" Mr. Brownback would care.

WOW!!!! How much you want to bet Brownback blames THIS on Obama??
Umm as for Brownback "restoring" the health of the pension system, how much did he have to do with it becoming "ill" in the first place?

Today in Lawrence: More rain, Vinland Fair and Dinner and a Movie

I love the Vinland Fair. My daughter rented the fairgrounds as her wedding venue two years ago. A lot of happy memories there.

Divided U.S. House abandons vote on border bill

There are a lot of Republican reps that are very angry over this.<br>
Cruz and Sessions (who was also involved in this) are SENATORS. What are they doing interfering in House business? The US Congress is not a unicameral body. <br>
As a microcosm, Kansas is facing a moderate Republican backlash. It's about time we see this on a national scale.

Davis leads Brownback in fundraising, polls show undecided race

Over a hundred moderate Republicans (about half of whom are former legislators) have joined the Davis campaign. Bill Kassebaum, Nancy's son and a former legislator himself, is Davis' economic manager.<br>
That says a lot right there.
