Republican Kris Kobach aims to rebrand in Kansas AG race
(AP) — Republicans in Kansas are talking a lot about whether there is a new Kris Kobach.
The former two-term Kansas secretary of state is attempting a political comeback as the GOP nominee for state attorney general.
Many Republicans think he’s better this year about staying on message and has a better organized campaign than he did when he lost the governor’s race in 2018 and a U.S. Senate primary in 2020.
Kobach’s critics scoff at the talk and point out that he’s outlined a long-term plan for banning abortion despite a statewide vote in August affirming abortion rights.
Kobach faces Democrat Chris Mann in the Nov. 8 election.
