Sam Brownback

At the invitation of the pastor of our church I had the opportunity to attend a Senator Sam Brownback meet and greet in Cedar Rapids last Friday. The guests were primarily local clergy so the Senators speech was focused on values and his stand on abortion. I was impressed with the Senator from the standpoint that he came across as a genuinely likable guy and his story of his family and adopted children was particularly touching. I do feel though that the Senator does not exude much passion, a fact that one of his staff agreed with during a follow up call last night. The staffer implied that she felt that the senators laid back style was a result of a lack of ego. The senator will be back in CR next week and was told that he would be addressing a wider range in topics.
