TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A new television ad for Kansas governor Sam Brownback is giving his Democratic opponent a bit of unintended free advertising.

The Wichita Eagle reported Friday that (https://bit.ly/1uCrmwZ ) the ad features the governor talking to people at different locations. In it, the governor touts his record and takes credit for 55,000 private sector jobs and a 4.9 percent unemployment rate. He assures the audience that “the sun is shining in Kansas.”

About 22 seconds into an ad, viewers can spot a Davis/Docking sign just behind the governor on his right side.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reported last month that supporters of Democratic candidate Paul Davis had gathered at a house next door to the Topeka home where Brownback was filming the commercial and held up campaign signs for Davis. It seems one of the signs managed to sneak into the ad.

The Brownback campaign declined to comment on the inclusion of a Davis sign in its television ad.
