Brownback Faces Trouble On The Right

KSCB News - November 15, 2010 12:00 am

Sam Brownback is perhaps the most

conservative Kansas governor-elect in at least a generation.

Yet he’s likely to face political problems on his right.

Signs of potential trouble emerged last week, when a Kansas

House member urged GOP colleagues in a letter to seek the repeal of

this year’s sales tax increase.

Brownback has criticized the tax increase but opposes repealing

it next year because of the state’s budget issues.

Abortion opponents are eager for additional rules and reporting

requirements for clinics and doctors. Their agenda also includes

restrictions on medical research with embryonic stem cells.

Brownback is a strong abortion opponent but has made it clear

the economy is his top priority.
