Kansas Attorney General Steve Six was appointed by far-left Democratic Governor Kathleen Sebelius, now a cabinet member in President Obama's administration. Six is making his first state-wide election effort in 2010, running against moderate Republican Senate Majority Leader Derek Schmidt.
In a letter Wednesday to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Six expressed disappointment with Holder's decision to sue Arizona over the new law.
Gavin Young, a spokesman for Six, says the Kansas attorney general believes Arizona had the right to pass the law and that it doesn't appear to encroach on the federal law.
