Brownback Launches Re-Election Campaign

Statehouse 2 small

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback kicked off his re-election campaign Tuesday morning by saying he'd work to create 100,000 new private-sector jobs in the next four years. At a rally in Overland Park, he said he would continue his policy of low tax rates to attract employers to the state. After presenting the platform, which he called "Road Map 2.0," the governor shrugged off questions about the state's shaky economic recovery. 

("We've had great growth in this state, and we're going to continue to invest in that private sector job growth and personal income growth.")

Federal data show that Kansas jobs grew at a sluggish 3.5 percent since Brownback took office. Nationally, the average is 6.1 percent. A Rasmussen poll released today (TUE) showed the governor currently trailing his Democratic opponent Paul Davis by ten points.
