WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The Republican Governors Association says it has made a $600,000 ad buy attacking the Democratic challenger to Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback.
The group’s chairman, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, will also be in Kansas on Wednesday for events with Brownback in Kansas City and Mission Hills.
That announcement Tuesday came as the group released the new TV spot targeting Brownback’s Democratic opponent, Paul Davis.
The conservative Republican governor is facing a strong challenge because of concerns about whether tax cuts his administration delivered may be ruining the state’s finances.
Christie will be going to a retail shop in Kansas City, Kansas, for a public event with Brownback as well as two closed fundraisers in Mission Hills before heading later in the day to Oklahoma for events with Gov. Mary Fallin.
