Kansas Secretary of State Candidates Clash on Voting Laws


Kansas City, MO – The Kansas Secretary of State administers statewide elections and handles business filings. It's an office that usually doesn't draw much attention, but this year has been different.

Democratic incumbent Chris Biggs is being challenged by Republican Kris Kobach, who is known for his work in writing laws targeting illegal immigration - including the controversial Arizona law.

Biggs and Kobach met for a debate in Overland Park.
