Democratic Lawmaker Launches Bid For Governor

KSCB News - February 18, 2010 12:00 am

A Democratic lawmaker has launched his

campaign for Kansas governor with an attack on the presumed

Republican nominee.

State Sen. Tom Holland, of Baldwin City, suggested Wednesday

that U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback would bring gridlock and partisanship

from Washington to Topeka. Brownback is the only GOP candidate

campaigning.

Holland had a rally on a street corner, across from a Topeka

elementary school, with about 80 supporters.

Brownback’s campaign didn’t respond to the criticism, saying

he’s focused on growing the economy. But the Kansas Republican

Party called Holland a liberal and questioned whether he’d stay in

the race long.

Holland is one of three Democrats seeking the party’s nomination

in the Aug. 3 primary, but he has the backing of party leaders.
