Kansas Democrats are seeking to frame the race for governor as a binary choice, but Kansas Republicans are relishing a crowded field that could allow the GOP to hold onto power in Topeka with a plurality of votes.
Gov. Jeff Colyer went into Tuesday preparing for a recount and potential court fight in his prolonged primary race against Secretary of State Kris Kobach. Instead, his day ended with a concession speech.
Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer’s lawyers sent a letter to the Johnson County Board of Canvassers arguing that the county needs to include in its final vote tally more than 150 ballots that were discarded because the signature did not match the voter’s registration record.
Kris Kobach continued to build on his lead in the Republican primary election for Kansas governor on Tuesday after the Johnson County Board of Canvassers certified its vote count to include provisional ballots.
Kansas’ two biggest counties have made different decisions on whether to count some disputed ballots from last week’s election. Sedgwick County adds 1,326 ballots to the election and Johnson County 1,451.
