Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback missed a comparatively few two of 16 Senate votes last week, slightly lowering his missed vote total for the year to 38.5 percent. He told the Washington Times that he tries to be in Washington, D.C., during the middle of each workweek or for close votes but has found it “very difficult to balance” his Senate job with his presidential bid — no surprise to Kansans. “It’s both tough and frustrating because if you’re going to run for president, you’ve got to be out talking to people about the topics,” he said. “And being in the House or Senate, you’ve got to be there voting on the topics.”
