Brownback Welcomes Obama, Doesn’t Alter Plans

KSCB News - December 6, 2011 8:28 am

Gov. Sam Brownback is welcoming President
Barack Obama to Kansas, but the Republican governor doesn’t plan to
attend a speech by the Democratic president.
Obama will be in Osawatomie Tuesday for a speech on the economy.
Some Republicans, both nationally and in Kansas, consider the visit
part of Obama’s re-election campaign.
In a statement Monday, Brownback’s office said any visit by a
president is an honor. But Brownback’s office also said the
governor couldn’t make the event in Osawatomie.
Brownback’s office said the governor had a long-standing
commitment to participate in a symposium at Wichita State
University on the state’s future.
