Sebelius is getting support from several Republican governors and from the chairman of the Senate panel that will handle her nomination.
Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, a Montana Democrat, says Sebelius would make a ``strong partner'' in revamping the health care system.
Kansas' two senators, both Republicans, offered words of praise.
The health insurance industry and consumer groups have responded favorably to Sebelius' nomination.
