Governor of Kansas Resigns
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback resigned yesterday after the U.S. Senate confirmed him to be the ambassador at-large for international religious freedom.
The vote was 49-49 along party lines, with two senators absent, and Vice President Mike Pence broke the tie in favor of Gov. Brownback.
Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer will take over as governor when the resignation becomes official on January 31.
