Kobach Lashes Out After GOP Moves To Torpedo Bid

Filed under infighting is funny:

Kansas GOP Senate candidate Kris Kobach lashed out at the state Republican Party on Friday after it called on two of his opponents in the race to drop out to narrow the field, amid fears from national Republicans about Kobach becoming the party’s nominee.

Republicans fear a crowded GOP primary could split up the establishment vote and allow Kobach to potentially pull off an insurgent victory. Kobach successfully won the party’s nomination in the 2018 gubernatorial race after a crowded contest, only to lose the general election to Democrat Laura Kelly in the deep red state.

The ultimate Republican nominee will run against state Sen. Barbara Bollier (D), who is expected to coast to her party’s nomination and spend the coming months gearing up for the general election.
