(AP)-- Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach's run for the governor's seat is getting a boost from President Donald Trump's son.

Kobach announced Monday that Donald Trump, Jr., will be in Kansas on November 28th for a campaign fundraiser. Kobach is Vice-Chairman of the President's Commission on Election Fraud.

So far 18 candidates, 11 republicans, six democrats and an independent, have appointed treasurers or committees for a campaign for governor next year, a requirement to raise money.

Kobach says in a news release it is an honor that Trump Jr., will join his campaign "at this important time."

Republican Governor Sam Brownback is term-limited and is expected to step down this fall to become U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom.
