Could it be the start of a political comeback?

Defeated but unbowed, Democrat Paul Davis resurfaced on Facebook late Wednesday with words of political encouragement for his supporters after narrowly losing to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback last fall.

Davis, a Lawrence attorney, blasted Brownback for proposed tax increases, cuts in education and an executive order removing legal protections for gay, lesbian and transgender state employess.

“I know you feel discouraged, but it is more important than ever to stay engaged, share information with your neighbors, and talk to lawmakers,” Davis said in his post.

“Gov. Brownback relies on his legislative allies to support his agenda, and they will all be on the ballot in 2016. Let's keep fighting. Are you with me?”

As of this morning, the post had 8,866 “likes.” Here is a link to the post.
