Brownback Backs McCain

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Senator Sam Brownback was among about 100
Republican activists who announced a new group supporting John
McCain for president.

Brownback says the Arizona senator is both acceptable and
electable.

The group called Kansans for McCain also includes the state's two representatives on the Republican National Committee.

Brownback is a chairman of the group along with National Committee member Steve Cloud of Lenexa. They say former Senator Nancy Kassebaum Baker will be the honorary chairwoman.

Hundreds of Republicans are gathering in Topeka for their Kansas
Day convention this weekend. The state GOP plans to hold caucuses February 9th to allocate 36 of the state's 39 delegates to the Republican National Convention in September in Minneapolis.

About 30 supporters of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee
gathered at the Statehouse today to watch video clips of the candidate and have a brief rally.
