Brownback To Unveil Kansas Re-Election Platform

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Republican Gov. Sam Brownback is holding rallies in three Kansas cities to outline the platform for his re-election campaign.

Tuesday's events in Overland Park, Topeka and Wichita were described as the unveiling of what Brownback's campaign is calling "Road Map 2.0."

The campaign did not disclose details beforehand, but in seeking his first in 2010, Brownback outlined a set of goals and called it the "Road Map for Kansas."

Those goals included increasing the state's per-person net personal income, boosting private-sector employment, and improving fourth-graders' scores on standardized reading tests. His other goals were making sure more high school graduates were ready for college and reducing the percentage of children living in poverty.

Brownback is facing a tougher-than-expected race against Democratic challenger Paul Davis.
