Republican Governor Resigns to take Role with the Trump Administration

Editorial credit: Albert H. Teich /

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback (R-KS) has announced his resignation, effective January 31st, and his plans to take a role in the Trump administration.

President Trump nominated Governor Brownback to be his ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom.

According to Kansas state law, Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer will now step in to finish Brownback’s term as Governor.

The Senate confirmation vote, normally a formality for ex-Senators, was nothing of the sort this time around.

The Democrat caucus rallied together to offer unified opposition to Brownback’s confirmation. Why? Because Governor Brownback supports traditional marriage, and has defended religious liberty in Kansas. For these “sins” Brownback has been labeled a homophobe and a bigot by Democrats.

A 49 – 49 tie (Republican Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Bob Corker (R-TN) were both missing for the vote, leaving the GOP shorthanded) in the Senate forced Vice President Mike Pence to step in and push Brownback’s confirmation across the line.

What makes the Democrat opposition most egregious is the fact that if President Trump had nominated a LGBTQ person who believed that gay rights trumped religious freedom to the post of ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom Democrats would have most likely supported that nomination happily.

This is the twisted nature of the Democrat Party today. They believe that it is more important to defend their current values and beliefs than it is to defend everyone’s RIGHTS.

It’s a sick and twisted Democrat Party we see ensconced in Washington, D.C. today and this vote on Governor Brownback’s confirmation are more evidence of how dark their minds have become.

As Ambassador-at-large for International Religious Freedom, Governor Brownback will never have anything to do with any with anything LGBTQ. His job will be to advocate for persecuted Christians in the rest of the world, of which there are hundreds of millions.

Governor Brownback will serve as an excellent ambassador for our persecuted brothers and sisters across the planet because he is one of them. Hopefully, he will take to heart how big and important his new role is and he will use his seasoned experience as a politician to help defend our Christian siblings around the world.
