Kris Kobach has a history aiding our state, despite push back from inept Republicrat Michele Reagan
Nearly a thousand miles away, Kansas is not right around the corner from Arizona, but many of us have been watching the close governor’s race there, with a definite favorite candidate.
Kris Kobach, the current Secretary of State, has many friends here. He was the architect of Arizona’s immigration enforcement bill known as SB 1070, shepherded through our state senate by then-Senate President Russell Pearce. Theirs was a winning coalition of Kobach’s legal expertise — he holds degrees from Harvard, Oxford and Yale Law School — and Pearce’s knowledge of Arizona’s unique situation as the most trafficked southern border portal for illegal aliens. Pearce was ideally placed to get his omnibus legislative package through, until he met with opposition from a pack of RINOs who joined with a united Democrat bloc to derail the legislation. Most of them are now out of office. But Michele Reagan, now running for reelection as Arizona Secretary of State despite numerous election-related calamities — joined the 2011 pack of Benedict Arnolds. Reagan, long known as a Republican of convenience, is being challenged by GOP businessman, Steve Gaynor, who deserves your vote.
Kobach, also a leading authority on election fraud and adviser to President Trump, is now a gubernatorial candidate running against an appointed interim governor vying for election. Though Kobach should have easily slid into the governor’s office with a hefty cushion of votes, his lead is razor thin. At last check of voter tallies, he was ahead by only 91 votes. Kobach, whose office is in charge of overseeing elections, has recused himself from the vote count.
The radical left, open borders media despise Kobach, whose wealth of experience and knowledge of the issues riles them. In turn, they have pummeled him with deceptive hit pieces posing as news reports. Here are a sample of the biased headlines:
L.A. Times: Trump endorses Kris Kobach, an immigration firebrand, in Kansas GOP governor’s race
Washington Post: Trump endorses anti-immigration hard-liner Kris Kobach in Kansas GOP primary
Kansas City Star (editorial): Kris Kobach is twisting the truth about undocumented immigrants at Kansas universities

Get it? This partial list of leftist skew explains the reason for the tight race, which should have been a cakewalk for Kobach.
