Seg. 1: Kansas Gov. Colyer Concedes To Kobach. Seg. 2: How Vaping Affects Young Lungs.

Aug 15, 2018

Segment 1: After the incumbent's endorsement, Kris Kobach emerges as the GOP nominee to face Greg Orman and Laura Kelly in November's midterm.

With the field set for this fall's gubernatorial election in Kansas, the three campaigns left standing will turn their full attention to winning in November.

Segment 2, beginning at 23:13: Are e-cigarettes a safer alternative to the old-fashioned variety?
