Brownback to withdraw from GOP race
WASHINGTON - Republican Sen. Sam Brownback, the Kansas conservative who struggled to raise money and gain recognition in the 2008 presidential campaign, will drop out on Friday, people close to him said Thursday.I had high hopes for Brownback, but after watching only a few debates, I saw too many shortcomings.
A stiff and un-inspiring demeanor coupled with being big-government didn't separate him from the field. As I have said before, there is more to being conservative than being pro-life. Being big government on the right issues isn't conservative, it is just simply being for big government. And that is one of the biggest issues right now. We need someone with a libertarian streak right now. Someone like Ron Paul.
