Kansas Governor Sam Brownback


Kansas Governor Sam Brownback is in talks with the Trump Administration about a potential ambassador position. Sources close to the governor say no offer has been extended yet. A Kansas City Dot Com article says Brownback is talking with the administration about taking the position of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations for Food and Agriculture. Brownback is a close friend of Vice President Mike Pence and would need to move from the Midwest all the way to Rome if he does take the position. Kansas Public Radio called it a done deal, citing a source close to the situation. Another source close to the governor says the report is premature but does call Brownback a great fit for the position. He served as the Kansas Secretary of Agriculture and spent 14 years with the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The ambassador is the liaison for the U.S. government to three different organizations that combat world hunger. They include the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, the World Food Program, and the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
