Kris Kobach indicates a run for Attorney General of Kansas
TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - 13 News reviewed campaign finance candidate filings and discovered Kris Kobach filed paperwork Wednesday with the state’s campaign finance office, indicating a possible run for Attorney General of Kansas. Kobach has named a treasurer for his campaign. However, he has not yet officially filed candidate paperwork with the Secretary of State’s office. He is set to make an announcement Thursday afternoon in Wichita which 13 News will carry at wibw.com
Kobach is a former Secretary of State who ran as the Republican nominee for governor against Democrat Laura Kelly. He also ran for U.S. Senate, losing to now Senator Roger Marshall, M.D.
“On a host of issues from a federal takeover of elections, to attempts to restrict our Second Amendment rights, the Biden administration and its allies in Congress have disregarded the constitutional limits on federal power. The most important officer who can fight back against such unconstitutional actions is a state attorney general,” Kobach said. During a press conference announcing his campaign, Kobach cited state attorneys general as “the last line of defense against unconstitutional overreach by the Biden administration.”
