Here are excerpts from Brownback’s victory speech he gave to an enthusiastic Republican audience:
“No more Obama-way. Now to a Kansas way. Our way is holding down taxes, holding down regulations, controlling spending. That’s our route. That’s the route we’re going to move America and Kansas forward.”
“Dr. Colyer and I put forward a ‘road map for Kansas’. You may be familiar with that statement. We put a lot of miles behind that. It’s a plan for the future. A plan for this state — to grow this state that we love and believe in so much. It’s a plan to grow our economy. It’s a plan to create private sector jobs. It’s a plan to excel in education. It’s a plan to support our families. It’s a plan to move forward.”
“We campaigned on the road map. We won on the road map. We will govern on the road map.”
“It’s a difficult time for many Kansas families. Jobs are scarce. The future is uncertain. Jeff and I promise you an energetic administration focused on what’s best for the people of Kansas, with a government serving the people, not the other way around.” …
“Together let us not be bitter for our circumstances, but let us be better for our future. …”
“We still believe in American exceptionalism. That this is a special place. And if America is a special place and a special country, then Kansas is the heart of it.”
