- The U.S. Senate and Congress will now benefit from strong Kansas voices against Obamacare;
- Gov.-elect Sam Brownback, will welcome, and sign, the many pro-life bills Sebelius vetoed.
Kansans for Life rejoices that the electorate expelled Sebelius’ hand-selected abortion-industry-protector, AG Stephen Six, and hopes that the Johnson County prosecution of Planned Parenthood will engage the assistance of AG-elect Derek Schmidt.
The 125-member Kansas House increased it’s pro-life majority to over 2/3 as nearly 80% of KFL-supported state representative candidates won their races. Correction Nov.5: Of the 20% losses, notably 4 endorsed pro-life incumbent Democrats were unseated by Republicans (3 pro-life and 1 undeclared).
The ‘Fire Beier’ campaign– started by the KFL political action committee to discourage retention of 4 Supreme Court justices –succeeded in diminishing the high approval the justices expected.
Unfortunately, all four justices were retained, after an extensive advertising campaign conducted at public expense, and with radio ads by pro-abortion Gov. Mark Parkinson urging their retention.
Given the difficulty of the task, and the fact that our budget allowed only one mailer, we are pleased to see that the approval rating of the justices fell to 62-63% for all four.
With a public confidence drop of 14-20% from only the first attempt to educate the public about activist judges, perhaps only one more campaign is all it takes to drop them below 50% and remove them!
(Congrats to Iowa for successfully removing 3 activist state justices.)
