Gov. Sam Brownback’s early endorsement of Rick Perry for president probably ruined any chance of a Romney-Brownback ticket. “But if I were Mitt, my choice would be Sam Brownback,” writes Huffington Post’s Erin Medlicott. Among her reasons: Brownback ran for president himself in 2008 and knows national fundraisers. As a senator, he worked with then-Sen. Joe Biden on Iraq and with other Democrats on other issues. He has solid conservative credentials and could help with conservative Christians. “I believe Brownback could ‘hit the ground running’ and has Capitol experience to get the job done,” writes Medlicott (who, it should be said, worked on Biden’s presidential bid).
