GOP hard-liner Kobach seeks comeback in race for Kansas AG
(AP) — Republican Kris Kobach is seeking to win a comeback bid for Kansas attorney general after two big losses raised the question of whether he was electable in his home state.
Kobach is a former two-term Kansas secretary of state.
He faced Democrat Chris Mann, a former police officer and local prosecutor making his first run for elective office, in Tuesday’s election.
Kobach is coming off losses in the Kansas governor’s race in 2018 and a U.S. Senate primary in 2020.
Many Republicans said they’ve seen a calmer and steadier Kobach this year.
