Kansas views on governor’s race, regents, medical marijuana

Governor’s race – During an Election Night interview, Gov. Sam Brownback was asked why voters seemingly were unhappy – or at least divided – with current GOP officeholders, many of whom faced stiff challenges from low-budget and lesser-known opponents. The answer – and we know you’ll be surprised by this – is President Obama, who apparently is not only destroying the economy and the world, but who has also reached his hands deep into the Kansas GOP to create a rift. “Well, I think a big part of it is Barack Obama,” Brownback answered. “A lot of people are so irritated at what the president is doing, they just want someone to throw a brick.” That’s right. People are so irritated with Obama that 37 percent of Republican voters cast a ballot for Jennifer Winn, who hardly campaigned at all, instead of Brownback.
