Happy Hour News BriefsThat’s GOVERNOR Kris Kobach to you!
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach launched his campaign for Kansas governor on Thursday, decrying a culture of corruption in Topeka and vowing to crack down on illegal immigration in a speech with echoes of President Donald Trump.
Kobach, the architect of controversial election and immigration laws, advised Trump on immigration policy throughout the 2016 election. He emphasized his connections to the president and promised to center his campaign on fighting “corruption, taxation and illegal immigration” during a speech at the Thompson Barn in Lenexa.
During an appearance on the Star’s Facebook live show “Beer Hour” later that day, Kobach said that he had turned down positions at the White House and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to remain in Kansas.
Looks like another stunning victory for Kansas’ straight, white Xristian cisgendered males. Dude is missing one K from being well-named, and what a coinky-dink: he hates everyone that that org hates. Whodathunkit, amiright?
