Brownback may need a Hail Mary campaign for any hope of re-election
The Kansas City Star
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has as much of a chance of winning re-election next year as Kansas City has of enjoying a 90-degree day on Sunday.
A new poll shows that Brownback is in trouble. His approval rating is at 37 percent and his disapproval number is 52 percent, The Kansas City Star reports. Is it any wonder?
Brownback is gambling with the state’s finances, cutting taxes to try to draw in more businesses, and shifting the burden back on the (wait for it) voters. Ouch.
He has mightily angered families struggling with a loved one with developmental disabilities. Brownback has crushed Democrats and he keeps kicking moderate Republicans in the backside with pointy cowboy boots — a nice shiny, steel-toe pair that the Koch brothers obviously bought for him.
Teachers and educators in the state have felt the Brownback boot in the slats, too. If the governor doesn’t get re-elected, he can kiss his chance of another White House run goodbye.
Right now, Brownback can pray over that President Barack Obama word — hope — that between now and Election Day next year people in Kansas will forget because nothing under the darkness this governor is creating will get any better.
