The veridict is in. Former Senator and Presidential Candidate, Fred Thompson, has endorsed Kris Kobach for Secretary of State.
"Kris Kobach served the country with great distinction at the Department of Justice during the Bush Administration," Thompson said. "He served my campaign equally well in 2008. He will perform invaluable service to the people of Kansas as Secretary of State. Kansas can trust him to protect the integrity of elections."
Kobach, law professor and former state Republican party chair, is running for the Republican nomination for Secretary of State against JR Claeys, Salina native and former head of the National Association of Government Contractors (NAGC).
Both candidates tout winning straw polls on their website but we'll wait until year end finance reports come out to who Kansans are really backing.
