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
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.''
