Brownback to hold forum at Leavenworth County Fair

With Congress taking its August recess, Sen. Sam Brownback continues a listening tour across Kansas.

The Republican senator scheduled a forum with citizens Tuesday at the Leavenworth County Fair in Tonganoxie.

Topics were expected to include health care reform and the possible transfer of detainees from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the military prison at nearby Fort Leavenworth.

Brownback, who is running for governor in 2010, has been speaking out against the possible transfers.
