Though the odds look grim, today’s rollout of the Holland-Kultala gubernatorial ticket signals that Democrats have no intention of losing quietly to the GOP’s Brownback-Colyer team. Casting themselves as the moderate alternative, state Sens. Tom Holland of Baldwin City and Kelly Kultala (in photo) of Kansas City, Kan., had choice words for the leadership offered by Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan. — “part of the problem,” “failed policies,” “divisive agenda,” “partisan record of saying one thing and doing another,” “Washington greed, negligence and working more for the special interests than for the common good.” Kultala is a one-termer in the Senate, but brings her experience as a Piper school board member and a commissioner in the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City. Still, in all but the northeastern part of the state, Holland’s announcement is a case of “Tom Who?” picking “Kelly Who?”
