Democrats for Brownback

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!”

  1. This is hilarious after all the Republicans for insert-name-of-Democrat-here groups that we usually see.

  2. Can’t say I’m not surprised, but good for them!
    If you look at his record, Brownback has done much awareness work for Darfur, he has publicly been opposed to school consolidation (let’s hope that doesn’t mean he’ll allow more taxes to support that), and he is pro-life, which any self-respecting bleeding heart liberal should in reality support.

  4. Why ask? You can be the first on your block to start one if you believe that the candidate of the opposing party is better than the candidate of your party.

    Personally, I think if you want to remain as a Democrat or Republican but don’t particularly like a specific candidate on your party’s ticket that you should just buck up and do your talking in the voting booth. And if you don’t like the general direction your party is going, either find another party you think is going in the right direction, or work within your party to alter its direction by becoming a candidate, or a precinct committee person, etc.
