Gov. Brownback Touts Kansas as Model for Prosperity

Gov. Brownback Touts Kansas as Model for Prosperity

By    |   Tuesday, 11 March 2014 11:31 AM EDT

The success of Kansas' economy is a result of following a "red-state model," the state's Republican Gov. Sam Brownback says, calling it an "American model" for prosperity.

"What you're seeing is [the] state of Kansas embracing a red-state model, which is low taxes, growth, pro-family. And let's put together, really, a situation that is the American model," he told "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday.

The policies in Kansas have been successful by holding down costs and creating growth, Brownback explained. As a result, the state can boast advances in education, a record number of new business formations, and an unemployment rate of 4.9 percent, far below the national average of 6.7 percent.

Since taking office, Brownback has overseen policy changes that included the largest tax cut in state history, an expansion of gun rights, restrictions on abortion, and sharply reduced welfare rolls.

Brownback is in a tight race to keep his governor's seat against Democratic challenger state Rep. Paul Davis. He said that because Davis voted for President Barack Obama twice and supported Obamacare, voters would decide they like the "Kansas model much better than the Obama model" for their state government.
