KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius will be back in the state this week to attend a political event for House Minority Leader Paul Davis.
The Kansas City Star reports Monday (http://bit.ly/1aFb5va ) that Sebelius, the current Health and Human Services secretary in President Barack Obama's administration, will attend the reception for Davis on Thursday in Mission Hills.
Davis, a Lawrence Democrat, has formed a campaign committee for a bid to challenge Republican Gov. Sam Brownback in 2014. Davis is expected to formally announce his campaign in the coming weeks. No other Democrat has announced plans to challenge Brownback next year.
Sebelius was elected twice as governor after serving as state insurance commissioner. She resigned in 2009 to join the Obama administration.
