TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A new television ad for Kansas governor Sam Brownback is giving his Democratic opponent a bit of unintended free advertising.
The ad features the governor touting his record and takes credit for 55,000 private sector jobs and a 4.9 percent unemployment rate. He assures the audience that “the sun is shining in Kansas.”
About 22 seconds into an ad, viewers can spot a Davis/Docking sign just behind the governor on his right side.
Supporters of Democratic candidate Paul Davis had reportedly gathered at a house next to the Topeka home where Brownback was filming the commercial and held up campaign signs for Davis.
The Brownback campaign declined to comment on having a Davis sign in its television ad.
