TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Governor Kathleen Sebelius says she's working a little more than usual on campaigning for Barack Obama.

Sebelius has traveled 15 days outside of Kansas since August 1st on behalf of the Democratic presidential hopeful.

The vocal Obama supporter, who was once considered a possible running mate, has visited battleground states in the Midwest several times. She also has extended her campaigning east and west to help Illinois senator Obama capture key electoral votes.

Despite her travels, Sebelius says she's fulfilling her duties as governor.

Her absences have been criticized by Christian Morgan, the Kansas Republican Party's executive director. Morgan says Sebelius isn't offering ``any of the key leadership that Kansans are used to getting from the governor.''
