TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Senate's next majority leader says he's an avid Marxist.

But Hutchinson Republican Terry Bruce means he's a follower of Groucho, not Karl.

Bruce is a fan of the Marx Brothers, and the decor of his new office at the Statehouse hints at his affinity for their classic comedy films from the 1930s.

He's displaying a photo of Groucho and two of his brothers, as well as a small poster for their film "Animal Crackers." They're near a photo of President and famed Kansan Dwight Eisenhower.

But there may be some internal dissension over Bruce's choice of comedy icons. Chief of staff Peter Northcott is a big fan of the Three Stooges and has two metal signs honoring them in his office.
