Kansas Highway Patrol Backs Davis In Governor Race

Another law enforcement group is backing Paul Davis over incumbent Sam Brownback for Kansas Governor.

The Kansas Highway Patrol's PAC says that they decided to back Davis because he fought consistently for laws that hold criminals accountable for their actions when he served in the Kansas House. 

The Kansas Paternal Order of Police publicly backed Davis over the summer. Davis supporters say that these endorsements show that he is hard on crime.

Gov. Brownback's spokesperson John Milburn said that, while the police and highway patrol do important and good work, it's unsurprising that they would side with the Democratic candidate.
