Democrat Chris Mann is keeping his campaign for Kansas attorney general focused on state issues and his background as a former police officer and prosecutor.

For former police officer and prosecutor Chris Mann, running for Attorney General "is just a continuation of my life in public service."

With a background as a Lawrence police officer, a prosecutor for Wyandotte County and then for the Kansas Securities Commission, Democrat Chris Mann believes he is "uniquely qualified" to be the next attorney general of Kansas.

Mann was critical of his opponent, Republican Kris Kobach, for wanting to "pursue his own political agenda." Mann argued that he will work to protect Kansans and "bring some important stability" to the office of attorney general.

The Republican candidate, Kris Kobach, was also invited to participate in the interview with Up To Date. He did not reply by the deadline.
