Little-known Kansas state Sen. Tom Holland kicked off his campaign for governor Wednesday, insisting voters deserve an alternative to Republican U.S. Sam Brownback.
Holland, a Baldwin City Democrat, said if elected in November he'll focus on creating private sector jobs and protecting the state's investment in education.
"I'm standing here today to let Kansans know they do have a choice for governor," he said.
Holland's campaign represents the latest attempt by Democrats to find a viable candidate to challenge Brownback, whose campaign for governor is well under way.
