Last year, on June 1, 2009, I told you about constitutional lawyer/former Bush administration homeland security official Kris Kobach’s announcement that he was running for Secretary of State in Kansas.
He zeroed in on election integrity, corruption, ACORN-style shenanigans, and the left’s voter fraud racket. Kobach has also been at the forefront of the immigration enforcement battles — fighting the spread of illegal alien sanctuary cities, representing victims of bloody open-borders policies, and playing a key role in drafting Arizona’s SB1070.
Last night, Kobach won the GOP nomination — despite being outspent 2 to 1 in a three-way primary. The Democratic incumbent nominee opposes Kobach’s call for photo IDs at the polls. Look for open-borders groups to increase their attacks on Kobach — and for the Democrats to make hay of Kobach’s volunteer work on behalf of the immigration enforcement movement.
Kobach’s response is perfect:
He’s said that if he’s elected, he’ll work as secretary of state between 40 and 50 hours a week, then spend an additional 20 hours on immigration issues.
“Some people golf in their spare time,” Kobach said last week. “I defend American sovereignty.”
I’ll repeat what I said last year when Kobach entered the race: We need a Kris Kobach in every state in the country.
