Farm Bureau endorses Huelskamp



Salina Journal

Kansas Farm Bureau’s endorsement of Republican Tim Huelskamp in the 1st District U.S. House race prompted Democrat Alan Jilka to say Wednesday that the organization has “abandoned” farmers and that Huelskamp’s largest donor wants to abolish farm subsidies.

Analysis: GOP mods could sink Kobach bid in Kan.


OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — About 150 of Kris Kobach’s fellow Republicans cheered loudly for him at a unity breakfast the morning after Kansas’ primary election. Within a week, his two former GOP rivals endorsed him for secretary of state.

Still, Republican moderates could doom the former Kansas GOP chairman’s bid for statewide office. If they do, a big reason will be the work on immigration issues that has brought national attention to Kobach, a University of Missouri-Kansas City law professor.

Kobach helped draft Arizona’s new law on illegal immigration, and he advises city officials and state legislators across the nation on how to crack down. His campaign has tapped into voters’ frustrations about the issue.

Farm groups worry about Kobach’s ideas


The Associated Press

TOPEKA — A Kansas politician’s plan to allow voters to enact laws without going through the Legislature is drawing criticism from major farm groups, and a fellow Republican leader said Friday that the idea worries agriculture leaders.

Kris Kobach, the Republican nominee for secretary of state, said he’s not surprised interest groups oppose his voter initiative plan. As residents of other states can, Kansas residents could put proposed laws and state constitutional changes on the ballot for voters’ approval.
