Who is Sam Brownback?

So many senators opposed Sam Brownback’s nomination that Mike Pence had to come down to the Capitol to cast the tie-breaking vote. Now, Brownback is the nation’s leader in promoting religious freedom worldwide. Brownback has a track record of citing religion to discriminate against LGBTQ people, ban abortion, attack birth control access, and keep reproductive health information away from young people.
