Kansas Governor Faces Questions About Role in Campaign to Oust SCOKAN Justices

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has not taken a public stance on whether voters should retain justices on the Kansas Supreme Court in this month's election.  However, the governor's political action committee has given money to a group trying to push four of the justices off the bench.

Get Ready for a Raucous Kansas Supreme Court Retention Race

The U.S. Senate race in Kansas isn't expected to be competitive and the governor isn't on the ballot this fall. So, the hardest fought statewide campaign might just involve four people you’ve never heard of.  For the first time ever there will be a coordinated effort to oust state Supreme Court justices.
