Here's a fun read from Kansas City Star's Steve Kraske on the decision by Alfred Murguia, whose family has deep, deep Democratic Party roots, to back Republican Sam Brownback for governor. http://primebuzz.kcstar.com/entries/kraske-you-just-wont-believe-whos-backing-sam-brownback/

U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, R-Topeka, was quoted in the Wichita Eagle at the Kansas Independent Oil and Gas Association as saying, ā€œIā€™m so proud to be an obstructionist. That takes talent.ā€

Here's an interesting story about six counties finding out about the Legislature's decision to exempt from property taxes an oil pipeline coming through their areas. http://www.kwch.com/news/factfinder12/kwch-news-kh-keystonepipe-taxincentives,0,1102078.story
