The Brownback/Colyer campaign announced the formation of Democrats for Brownback today.
“My running mate, Dr. Jeff Colyer, and I are humbled by the strong, bipartisan support our vision for Kansas is receiving from across the state,” U.S. Senator Sam Brownback said.
Co-chairing Democrats for Brownback are Mary Jeanette Farver of Little River; Peg Martin of Shawnee County; Alfred Murguia of Kansas City; and Dan Thimesch of Cheney. They released the following statement:
“Sen. Sam Brownback has worked tirelessly for the people of Kansas for more than 20 years. We have seen him partner with a diverse cross-section of people to find the best solutions to issues facing Kansas and our nation. Differing political views did not matter to him. What mattered was working together to solve a problem. Sen. Brownback will bring that same leadership approach to Topeka as our next governor. We look forward to working with Governor Brownback to grow our economy, improve education, protect Kansas families and take care of our returning veterans!”
