Governor Kathleen Sebelius says recent presidential campaign polling in the upper Midwest shows the region is still in play for both parties.
Sebelius campaigned in Iowa Tuesday for Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama.
She started her day in Cedar Rapids, then planned stops in Iowa City and Burlington. She says the campaign will focus on the economy and try to tie John McCain's tax and economic plans to President Bush's policies.
Kansas Republican Party Director Christian Morgan criticized Sebelius for taking off on a campaign swing during the week instead of leading our state. A Sebelius spokesperson says the governor campaigns as her schedule permits and, with technology, is in constant contact with her office and staff.
