The 2008 election season isn't over yet, but many of Kansas' top elected officials are already gearing up for the next cycle.

The state could see a seismic shift in the political landscape over the next two years. Republican Sen. Sam Brownback plans to honor his commitment to leave office after serving two terms and is considering a bid for governor.

Rep. Jerry Moran, a Republican from western Kansas, is now telling supporters he plans to run for Brownback's soon-to-be open seat. That would create an opening for a new member of Congress.

Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius also is expected to consider a bid for the U.S. Senate as her second term comes to an end.

A race between Sebelius and Moran would set up a clash between two of the most popular political figures in the state.
