Kobach for president?

The Kansas Republican most likely to run for president would seem to be Gov. Sam Brownback, who already has one attempt on his resume. But some conservative voices are eyeing another Kansan: Secretary of State Kris Kobach. Speaking to ABC, columnist Ann Coulter included Kobach on a "farm team" of "stunning Republican talent" such as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli and Florida congressman Alan West. And while responding to a recent New York Post commentary by Kobach, National Review blogger Mark Krikorian wrote: "Kris is a patriot, a genuine conservative and a good guy, and I will happily vote for him when he runs for president some day, as I think likely."
