It’s rare when a state Senate President fails to endorse a Governor of the same party, but that’s what just happened in Kansas. The state, having one of the most notorious splits between Republican conservatives and moderates, continues to see division within GOP leadership ranks.
Yesterday, state Senate President Susan Wagle (R-Wichita) announced that she is supporting Secretary of State Kris Kobach for the Republican nomination over Gov. Jeff Colyer. The latter man, who was elected Lt. Governor, ascended to the state’s top job when then-Gov. Sam Brownback (R) accepted a position in the Trump Administration. The Kansas primary is fast approaching on August 7th.
