(Photo by Stephen Koranda)Republican Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has won another term in office by beating Democratic challenger Paul Davis. Brownback had about 50 percent of the vote to Davis’s 46 percent. Libertarian Keen Umbehr had the remaining 4 percent. KPR’s Stephen Koranda reports on Brownback’s victory.


In a short speech to supporters, Brownback thanked his opponent for a good race. He likened the Kansas State Fair debate with Davis to a wrestling match and said it is something he would not soon forget. He told the crowd that his victory shows that ideas and direction matter to voters.

“We’ve made bold moves in the state of Kansas and in some cases tough moves to get our state growing again. It hasn’t been easy, but doing the right thing rarely is. Tomorrow, we get back at it making the Kansas comeback a reality, for our kids and our grandkids to come back to the state of Kansas, because things are happening here,” says Brownback.

Brownback said he’ll focus on issues such as education, the economy and poverty in his second term.
