Jack Cashill about Kris Kobach, Kansas’ next Secretary of State: “A Star Is Born in Kansas”

Jack Cashill:

One Kansas race that deserves more attention than it might seem to deserve was that for secretary of state. Incumbent Democrat Chris Biggs ran against much reviled Republican aspirant Kris Kobach.

For those who are paying attention, it is not Moran, not Brownback, not Yoder who will emerge as the star of the party, but Kobach.

Kobach ran on the simple message, “Stop Voter Fraud.” The Kansas City Star mocked his message as trivial and the candidate as extreme. The Star had been merely parroting the line advanced by the local moderate Republican establishment since Kobach emerged a few years ago: he is too “scary” to win.

For RINOs and Democrats “scary” means smart, conservative, principled, and attractive. By this definition, Kobach is indeed their worst nightmare.
