Brownback would
define candidacy by opposing gays

Sam Brownback
said Thursday that conservative values like opposition to
abortion and same-sex marriage will distinguish him from
others vying for the 2008 Republican presidential
nomination. ''I think there's room in the field for
someone with full-scale conservative values,'' the Kansas
senator told about 80 people at a conference room of a
branch of the Spartanburg, S.C., Regional
Healthcare System. ''I don't think that end of the
field's crowded.''

Brownback's visit
comes one day after another possible GOP contender for
the White House—former Oklahoma governor Frank
Keating—also visited South Carolina.

Brownback, who
said he will announce next month whether he will run, also
spoke about this early-voting state's importance in the
nomination process. ''There's a good probability South
Carolina will make the determination of who the
Republican nominee is,'' he said. (AP)
