His political comeback is over

Kobach pursued a fiercely conservative agenda that promises to open a special trial unit to indict President Joe Biden’s administration, prosecute voter fraud, eliminate hidden transportation costs for residents, reinstate the state’s pro-life laws, and take rigorous action against scammers defrauding consumers.
Kobach’s win is a major conservative comeback after previously running for Senate in 2020 and governor in 2018. From 2011 to 2019, Kobach was Kansas’s 31st Secretary of State. He has five children with his wife, Heather.
