Brownback Seeks to Rally Kansas GOP For Fall Race

KSAL StaffAugust 6, 2014

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback is rallying Republican activists to promote what he says is the Kansas economic comeback after the state’s primary election showed significant dissent within the GOP.

Brownback and other prominent Republicans had a short rally Wednesday morning at the state GOP’s headquarters in Topeka. He urged Republicans to get out and spread a message about how aggressive income tax cuts he engineered are boosting economic growth.

The governor faces a tougher-than-expected re-election race with Democrat Paul Davis because of questions about whether the tax cuts are boosting growth or undermining the state’s finances. Davis said Wednesday that people are worried about the governor’s policies.

Some are Republicans. In Tuesday’s primary, Jennifer Winn, the governor’s lesser-known and underfinanced opponent, received nearly 37 percent of the vote.
