Brownback to Leave Senate

Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas has announced he will not run for reelection in 2010. As one of the more socially conservative members of Congress this retirement gives hope for an improvement, possibly even if the Republicans continue to hold the seat. The bad news, at least for the people of Kansas, is that he is considering running for governor.

In 2007 Kansas decided to join the 21st century and teach evolution as opposed to creationism in its schools. Will Brownback reverse this?  Brownback was one of three Republican candidates who raised their hands when asked who does not believe in evolution at a GOP debate. Subsequently Brownback had an op-ed in The New York Times explaining why he does not believe in evolution.
