When the Topeka Capital-Journal’s editorial board endorsed Gov. Sam Brownback’s re-election in 2014, it said it was “too soon to say his economic plan has failed” and that “the doom and gloom has been overstated.” But 17 months and hundreds of millions of dollars in budget shortfalls later, the editorial board has now declared that Brownback’s “real live experiment” has failed. A Sunday editorial said that Brownback’s “vision for fiscal policy has been devastating” and called on him to “reverse course before additional damage proves irreparable.” – Phillip Brownlee
