The article reports that Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius officially began her re-election campaign using a noon rally at the state capitol to start her quest to become the first Democrat in more than 20 years to be re-elected governor of Kansas. Sebelius served two terms as state insurance commissioner before winning the governor's office in 2002. U.S. House Minority Leader Dennis McKinney, a Democrat from Greensburg, and former Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jill Docking of Wichita are considered the front-runners for the second spot. Six Republicans are seeking the GOP nomination for governor, including state Senator Jim Barnett and former state House Speaker Robin Jennison.
