Praeger no longer holding tongue about Brownback

It's been clear for some time that Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger is no fan of Gov. Sam Brownback, particularly after he undercut her work to develop a Kansas-run insurance exchange. But the long-serving Republican made her feelings know in a very public way this week. Praeger announced her opposition to Brownback's re-election in a video by a new bipartisan coalition called "Reroute the Roadmap." In the video, Praeger says, "We looked at the road map that the governor outlined when he took office, and when you look at where we're going today, we're going in the wrong direction."
