Brownback getting national media buzz
Gov. Sam Brownback was the subject of two national pieces this week.
Yahoo News focused on his potential as a 2016 Republican presidential candidate.
"His quiet, yet ambitious, work in Kansas has proceeded without major controversies of the sort that have helped define Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who fought a pitched battle with public-sector unions, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was a magnet for viral controversies even before the recent allegations of misconduct surrounding the closure of George Washington Bridge lanes," wrote Chris Moody. Here is a link to that story.
And The Daily Caller dissected the pros and cons of Brownback's tax policy in this story.
This attention follows a Feb. 13 piece in the New York Times, headlined "Brownback Leads Kansas in Sharp Right Turn."
Meanwhile in Kansas, Brownback faces a tough re-election challenge against House Minority Leader Paul Davis, D-Lawrence. The race is neck-and-neck, according to a recentpoll.
