It's easy to see why Kansans for Life decided to endorse Sen. Huelskamp.
An amendment was successfully adopted by the Kansas Senate that would de-fund Planned Parenthood in Kansas during the next budget year. Although the amendment still faces several hurdles, mainly pro-abortion Gov. Sebelius, the amendment just goes to show the strength and courage Sen. Huelskamp has to attack even the mightiest of the abortion industry.
At the same time, Sen. Huelskamp was also fighting Kansan's right to bear arms. SCR 1611 would allow the people to decide if an individuals right to bear arms should be included in the state constitution.
I continue to be amazed at how efficiently Sen. Huelskamp is able to move his priorities forward in the Kansas Senate and at his success on not just one issue, but many. His ability to produce results and not hyperbole is certainly an issue that I hope will be raised as the campaign drags on.
For me personally, I appreciate someone who follows through on past promises. As I mentioned back in December, Sen. Huelskamp said he would target Planned Parenthood funding, and he's now followed through. That's certainly refreshing given what we're used to seeing in Topeka, isn't it?
Also, I guess Sen. Huelskamp is now on Twitter. You can follow him @timhuelskamp. Looks as though he's a fairly regular tweeter. So if you tweet, give him a follow.
