Candidate filing deadline bumped back to June 11

TOPEKA — The Kansas Secretary of State’s office announced via Twitter this afternoon that it has moved the deadline for House, Senate and Board of Education to June 11, a result of the gridlock in the Statehouse on approving new district maps.

Kobach said in late April that he would have to bump the filing deadline from June 1 to June 11 if maps hadn’t been approved by today.
