Republican Kris Kobach, seeking comeback, launches campaign for Kansas attorney general

Source: Kansas City Star

Republican Kris Kobach is running for Kansas attorney general, marking his latest comeback attempt after losing bids for governor and U.S. Senate.

Kobach’s aim of becoming the state’s top law enforcement official is likely to draw sharp scrutiny of his checkered record as an attorney, which includes being held in contempt by a federal judge and serving as counsel to a non-profit whose leaders are charged with fraud.

Few Kansas politicians have done more to emphasize their ties to former President Donald Trump than Kobach, and his candidacy could test the staying power of a Trump-like message in the state as the country moves on from his presidency.

“The most important reason I’m running is to stand between the Biden Administration and the people of Kansas when the Biden Administration tries to do unconstitutional things,” Kobach said in an interview.

2. Perennial candidacy was funny when Harold Stassen was doing it

He was a Republican (before the party went off the rails) who

sought the presidential nomination at the 1948 Republican National Convention, winning a significant share of the delegates on the first two ballots of the convention. During the Republican primaries preceding the convention, he engaged in the Dewey–Stassen debate, the first recorded debate between presidential candidates.

Stassen sought the presidential nomination again at the 1952 Republican National Convention, and helped Dwight D. Eisenhower win the nomination by shifting his support to Eisenhower. After serving in the Eisenhower administration, Stassen sought various offices. Between 1958 and 1990, he campaigned unsuccessfully for the positions of Governor of Pennsylvania, Mayor of Philadelphia, United States Senator, Governor of Minnesota, and United States Representative. He further sought the Republican nomination for president in 1964, 1968, 1976, 1980, 1984, 1988, and 1992.

4. Kansas has traditionally been Republican dating back to the Civil War,

but Kansas was immune to the 1960s-90s "party change" (when the South flipped from solidly D to solidly R and the West went from R to D).

9. A question I ask myself daily being one.

He has been rejected the last several times he ran for office but now? I don't know. After this last election I cannot even imagine an R losing except maybe him.

I would not put money on his chances of losing even though we have been rejecting him the last few times he has run for an office. Something happened here that reversed every gain we had. Something bad is going on.

6. Don't you have to leave to have a comeback?

It reminds me of the old country song, "How Can I Miss You when You Won't Go Away?"
