After being strongly pro-choice when he ran for governor of Massachusetts, then saying he was pro-life during the GOP presidential primary, Mitt Romney said this week that “there’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda.” But later that day a Romney spokeswoman issued a statement saying that “Gov. Romney would of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life.” Romney’s campaign also contacted pro-life leaders to assure them that he really is anti-abortion.

The largest city in Kansas has never seen one of its own chosen to be president of the Kansas Senate (nor has a Wichitan served as speaker of the Kansas House since Dale Bryant in 1949-50). So state Sen. Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, will make history for her community if she wins the Senate presidency – a candidacy already endorsed by Gov. Sam Brownback and U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran. Wagle also would be the first woman to lead a chamber of the Legislature. First, Wagle must win re-election on Nov. 6 against Democrat Patrick Cantwell. Wagle already can be congratulated on some sweet victory – her second triumph over cancer, after going through chemotherapy over the summer for non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
