Brownback’s lean campaign

The New York Times reports this morning that as Sen. Sam Brownback tours Iowa in the early phases of his presidential campaign that he “is struggling to make himself known to most voters, and to convince them that his views on the issues are more important than the name recognition enjoyed by his better-known rivals in the crowded field seeking the Republican nomination.”

And the paper notes that Brownback, who is traveling only with two aides, faces a crowded field of more popular candidates who, like Sen. John McCain, roll into town with busloads of reporters and staff members.
