Kobach Holds Razor-Thin Lead in Kansas Governor's Race

Kansas’ gubernatorial race remains close the day after the Republican primary, as less than 200 votes separate Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Gov. Jeff Colyer.


Kobach led Colyer by just 191 votes once all precincts were reporting at 7:50 a.m. Wednesday morning, according to unofficial results from The Wichita Eagle, votes to Colyer’s 126,066, but the slim margin will likely lead to a recount unless provisional and mail-in ballots favor one candidate.


President Donald Trump threw his support behind Kobach in the last days before the primary, but Colyer had more money and endorsements from the National Rifle Association and former Sen. Bob Dole, a political icon in Kansas.


Kobach was an early supporter of Trump’s, and led the voter fraud commission that failed to find any evidence to support the president’s claims of widespread voter fraud.
