TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Governor Sam Brownback has gained another endorsement from a former Kansas Congresswoman.

Jan Meyers announced Monday that she is proud to stand with Brownback as his campaign builds momentum.

“I am very pleased and honored to endorse the re-election of Sam Brownback as Governor of Kansas," said Meyers.

Last week, Meyers was included on a list of republicans backing Brownback's challenger Paul Davis. Meyers has said not only did she not agree to endorse Davis, but that she wouldn't endorse a democrat.

“I wanted to set the record straight on the recent announcements that some Republicans including me are not supporting Governor Brownback’s re-election,” Meyers said. “For my part, nothing could be further from the truth. I do support Sam Brownback for another term as Governor.”

Meyers says she agrees with the governor on a broad range of issues.

“I’m very supportive and pleased with Sam’s advocacy of small business and his efforts to reduce the tax burden on entrepreneurs which encourage economic development and job creation. As the former Chairman of the US House Committee on Small Business I understand that Sam has proposed and the Legislature has passed public policies to promote economic growth and relieve the burdens of over-regulation.," said Meyers.
