+ Three public polls have come out in Kansas and all three polls show Paul Davis beating Sam Brownback. Today, a new PPP poll shows Davis beating Brownback 45-41. And this poll was conducted BEFORE Brownback’s far-right legislators attacked Kansas teachers and showed their true colors on public education.

+ When asked about childhood poverty levels at a recent event, Sam Brownback said: “It’s been flat. That’s one of my five measurables that I’ve been running on. To get childhood poverty down in the state of Kansas.” Since 2011 childhood poverty in Kansas has risen from 19% to 23.15%. Just another misleading line from Governor Brownback.

One of the Kansas Legislature’s longest-serving members, Rep. Michael Peterson (D), died early Tuesday following a lengthy illness.

Peterson was among the legislature’s longest-serving members. He was first elected in 1979 to represent the 32nd House District, encompassing part of Kansas City, Kansas and Wyandotte County. The attorney served until 1990, then was re-elected in 2005.

While this is welcome news, Kansans should keep up the momentum by taking a moment to locate their state senator and contact them (call, snail mail, e-mail, tweet) to inform them to oppose this bill.
