In Governors’ Races, Is Conservative Governance on the Ballot Too?

Hosted by

Four years ago, Republican Sam Brownback was elected Governor of Kansas with double the votes of his Democratic opponent. He declared his administration would be a “real live experiment” in achieving prosperity by reducing the role of government and creating a model for other states.

Some Republican business interests aren’t feeling the sunshine. They’re supporting Brownback’s Democratic opponent, Paul Davis.
