Solid Performance from Barnett

I had a chance to see State Senator Jim Barnett (running for Governor) speak earlier this week.

All in all Barnett put in a solid performance for a candidate early in the election cycle. Barnett focused primarily on economic issues, discussing the policy research he has done regarding the sub par economic growth in Kansas. Barnett stressed the importance of balancing the budget, attracting business and innovation to Kansas, and improving education.

During the Q&A session Barnett showed a thoughtful grasp of issues, even when questioned by two Democrat party activist who tried to challenge him.

While Barnett didn't blow e away, it was a very solid performance that demonstrated that he has solid credentials and has put some serious thought into the key issues facing Kansas.

Want us to know about it?
