Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is locked in a tight race with Democrat Jean Schodorf. Both candidates have 46 percent support in the latest SurveyUSA poll, sponsored by KSN, Channel 3. But where Kobach is succeeding is in making immigration a top issue of the campaign, even though it has little to nothing to do with the office. Of those surveyed, 37 percent said that immigration was the most important issue, followed by 21 percent who said voter registration. Among those most concerned about immigration, Kobach leads Schodorf by 32 points. – Phillip Brownlee
