Brandmeyer, the Polk County GOP official, contrasted Frist's and Brownback's styles.

"Brownback is really out here helping with my local candidates and Senator Frist is out here representing his PAC; he's not really campaigning along my local candidates," she said, noting that Brownback has a much smaller leadership PAC.[(WorldNetDaily commentary) Losing to Iran:][2] We had hoped that Secretary Rice would bring to the State Department a renewed vigor and a determination to effect a policy of regime change in Iran.
