Governor Brownback May Seek Involvement in Redistricting Lawsuit

 sos seal(Image credit: Kansas Secretary of State Elections Division, via, Kan. (AP) — Governor Sam Brownback says he may try to get involved in a federal lawsuit over the Kansas Legislature's failure to redraw the state's political boundaries. The conservative Republican governor told reporters Saturday that he is still deciding whether he'll file a request for permission to intervene in U.S. District Court. Interested parties have until Monday to file such requests. Nine other people have filed such requests, including House Minority Leader Paul Davis and Senate Reapportionment Committee Chairman Tim Owens, a moderate Overland Park Republican. Three federal judges plan to begin a hearing on the lawsuit May 29. The lawsuit was filed earlier this month by Robyn Renee Essex, a Republican precinct committee member from Olathe. The defendant is Secretary of State Kris Kobach.
