Kansas Gov.-elect Sam Brownback's team is giving people an extra week to get tickets to his inaugural ball.


The new deadline for securing tickets to the Jan. 8 festivities is Dec. 30.


As Thursday's original deadline approached, Brownback's inaugural committee says it heard from many supporters who were still completing their guest lists. It decided to extend the deadline.


The dinner and ball in Topeka take place two days before the new Republican governor takes the oath of office.


People can get tickets using a form on the committee's website or calling its office, at 785-246-6322.


Tickets start at $125. For $2,000, a purchaser receives eight "preferred view" seats at the dinner and ball, plus two tickets to a VIP reception beforehand.
