  •  I'm really liking Tom Holland for KS-Gov. (3+ / 0-)

    Brownback's popularity in the state is under 50%, and he's a known quantity. He's unlikely to get any more popular, particularly in a state where the right-wing evangelical power that got him elected is on the decline (my test case for this is my mother, who's a Republican evangelical conservative who told a Moran volunteer the other day that she wasn't voting for any more Republicans until they start being for something rather than against everything -- the volunteer said she'd been hearing that a lot).

    Holland, on the other hand, told the Chamber of Commerce to stick it.From Holland's letter:

    The priorities and actions of the Kansas Chamber of Commerce have become highly partisan and detrimental to the development of our state’s economy.  As the next Governor of Kansas, I look forward to the day when I can work with a state chamber organization that constructively engages all stakeholders and works to foster real economic development in Kansas

    "I set up a stage, put up a few banners, stuck a podium up there, and started shouting 'Yes we can.' Next thing you know there's 150,000 people here." -Joe

      Glad to hear the anedoctal story from your mom. I'm hearing that some conservative Kansans aren't too thrilled about Jenkins' Noper performance either.

      There is no more important struggle for American democracy than ensuring a diverse, independent and free media. - Bill Moyers
