His political comeback is on

Kobach ran on a fiercely conservative agenda that vows to open a special litigation unit to sue President Joe Biden’s administration, prosecute voter fraud, eliminate concealed carry fees for residents, restore the state’s pro-life laws, and rigorously go after scammers that are defrauding consumers.
Kobach’s victory is a major conservative comeback after previously running for Senate in 2020 and governor in 2018. From 2011 to 2019, Kobach served as the 31st Kansas Secretary of State. He has five children with his wife, Heather.
