He's not Moran or Tiahrt so the Democrats will love him.
Apparently the Dems have virtual nobodies as the declared candidates for Governor and Senator currently. Youd think the new Lt Gov would want to step up and run, but apparently not.
Nobody serious. They won't get a name for governor because nobody wants to get runover by Brownback by getting between him and the White House. But I'm expecting Parkinson to declare next year. And I wouldn't count Sebelius out just yet.
LOL! The Lupin Bandit gets around!
Who are you going with in the Senate primary ?
Moran. I think he's the more stable and conservative of the two, and the one most likely to attract statewide support. Tiahrt has a streak of flakiness in him. Though with Brownback at the top of the ticket and Obama imploding it'll be tough for the Dems to take anything.
Had Moran run back in ‘02 for Governor, we could’ve avoided the whole Gilligan-Sebelius fiasco from the get-go. I’m not very enamored of Brownback anymore. I think he has been in DC too long (will have been 16 years by Jan 2011), and that may show up once he gets to Topeka (a la Frank Murkowski, Dirk Kempthorne, etc.). Former Senators rarely make good Governors. Our last “R” Governor in TN was a 12-year Congressman, and he ended up a disaster.

Brownback is running for governor for one reason and one reason only, to run for president. What he does to Kansas in the interim and who he does it to doesn't matter so long as it futhers that goal.
Brownback won’t ever be President. I love these guys that go to the Senate that instantly think they’re all going to be the next President...
No, he won't. But that won't stop him from trying.
Curious. Has the death of Dr. George Tiller changed the political winds at all in Kansas? I could imagine the Rodents attempt to link Phil Kline and Tiller’s death to Brownback and Moran.
Not at all. Tiller hasn't been mentioned in connection with any candidate since he was killed. That might change in the election, but it could easily backfire and bite the Democrats. My guess is he'll never even be brought up by them.
