In her World Net Daily column, Jill Stanek wonders if Brownback is betrayingthe anti-abortion movement and trading the Howe endorsement for support from moderate Republicans in his expected 2010 gubernatorial bid.
Anti-abortion types were so displeased with Brownback’s early support of Howe, Stanek writes, that they ambushed the senator at his D.C. office last week, asking him to rethink the endorsement. Brownback was noncommittal.
