The reason Brownback was reelected is his opponent in the last election was a far left tax, "spend and tax and tax some more "liberal. Had he been a moderate, I myself sure would have voted for him and Brownback would have been defeated in my opinion. I really felt between a rock and a hard place when casting my vote as it was a choice between voting for the far left or voting for the far right. It sucked as I am no fan of Brownback!!
