A top political supporter confirms that Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback will seek a second term next year.
The first-term Republican governor recently sent a message to supporters seeking to raise funds for the 2014 campaign.
David Kensinger, who heads Brownback's political action committee, said Friday that the governor "is actively raising funds and mobilizing grassroots supporters." Kensinger noted Brownback has not made a formal announcement yet but says he is a candidate for re-election.
Brownback's message says that under his administration, Kansas has gone from a projected budget deficit to a surplus. The governor also says he has cut taxes and increased jobs in the private sector.
