“Our people deserve so much better than what’s happening in Topeka right now. We’re going in the wrong direction.”
— Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a leading conservative voice on immigration and voting rights and a leader of President Trump’s new commission on election fraud, announcing Thursday he will seek the Republican nomination for governor in 2018. The announcement comes just two days after the state legislature rolled back tax cuts implemented by outgoing GOP Gov. Sam Brownback.
