Back Roads to the White House: Brownback out of ammo

Excerpted from this post at Back Roads to the White House

The Associated Press is reporting that Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas is
expected to drop out of the 2008 Republican presidential contest on
Friday, in part due to troubles raising campaign cash. Brownback
didn't go down without a fight. He was a frequent visitor to Iowa, the
first caucus state. He had a well-honed message mixing family values
with his call for major tax reform and a bipartisan, federalist
solution to the instability in Iraq. He had an aggressive campaign
operation that picked fights with rivals up and down the candidate
"tiers." But he never caught on -- as his 2 percent showing in the
latest USA Today/Gallup poll suggested. We had a good time chasing
Brownback down the "Back Roads to the White House."
