According to the AP, Sam Brownback will drop out of the presidential race.
This is no surprise to me. Brownback has struggled throughout the entire year with fundraising and making a case for his candidacy to conservatives. His campaign took a blow in the August Ames poll, in which Huckabee came in second. Since then, he has had very little media attention and his chances at the nomination dwindled to almost nothing.
Brownback has raised about $4 million for the entire year and has only $94,000 left on hand for his presidential bid. Failure does not even begin to describe his campaign.
“I know Senator Brownback enjoyed campaigning and meeting new people in talking about ideas for the future of America, but I think it came down to money,” said one person close to Brownback, who requested anonymity because the candidate had not yet announced his plans.
So, question is, would Brownback seek Sabelius’ Governor’s seat and would Sebelius seek Brownback’s Senate seat?
And, is Duncan Hunter next?
