WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A group of Kansas women have formed an organization to work to change leadership of state government, starting with defeating Gov. Sam Browback and Secretary of State Kris Kobach in November.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Women for Kansas was founded in Wichita as a grassroots group that claims to cut across political, racial, cultural and economic boundaries.
Laura Dungan is a member of the group and says women's issues have moved backward in Topeka. The group hopes to reverse the trend by working to defeat Brownback and Kobach, both Republicans.
Officials with Brownback and Kobach's campaigns defend their achievements since being elected in 2010, including efforts to improve the economy, lower taxes and increase funding for schools under recent legislation signed in to law.
