AMID WAVE OF PROGRESSIVE BACKLASH ACROSS THE NATION: KRIS KOBACH LAUNCHES KANSAS SENATE RUN!!!
The field for the next Kansas senator is crowded with at least 16 prospective candidates and here's an official newsie quote:
Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is launching a campaign to run for the U.S. Senate next year.
Kobach filed paperwork Monday with the Federal Election Commission forming a campaign committee. He scheduled a speech Monday afternoon in Leavenworth.
He is seeking the Republican nomination for four-term GOP Sen. Pat Roberts' seat. Roberts is not seeking re-election in 2020.
Some Republicans do not want Kobach to run for the Senate because he lost the governor's race last year to Democrat Laura Kelly . . .
Kobach is an advocate for tough immigration policies. He was an early and vocal supporter of President Donald Trump in 2016 but has frequently alienated GOP moderates.
And so we ask . . .
IS THIS KRIS KOBACH RUN NOT REALLY THAT IMPORTANT GIVEN THIS DIMINISHED STATUS AMONG KANSAS REPUBLICANS?!?
Let's be real, he's not really as fearsome as he used to be after getting an infamous whipping and embarrassing smack down from a Kansas granny.
Also, obviously, Prez Trump never called him back about the job in the White House . . .
And so this run seems kinda desperate and one step beyond a last political stand.
