Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach launched his campaign to fill the seat of retiring U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts in July 2019.

Democrats raring to take Kris Kobach on in the general election should be careful what they wish for, said the former Kansas secretary of state. Kansans haven't sent a Democrat to the Senate since 1932.

Today, Kobach laid out his positions on several campaign issues, and discussed what he'd press for from Congress in a new coronavirus aid package.
