Sam Brownback (b. 1956 - still kicking) was the senior US Senator from, and now governor of, the state of Kansas who wrote a less than stellar editorial for the New York Times about how he thinks evolution is false. Although he is very pro ID, he still maintains a "teach the controversy" view in the political arena. In 2007, he was a Republican candidate for the 2008 presidential election. His views on immigration are considered to be at odds with the general conservative view, apparently he likes them because of what the Bible said about welcoming strangers. He retired from the Senate in 2010, due to self-imposed term limits. This meant he promptly became governor.
