Points
  • The former Kansas secretary of state " an unabashedly Trumpist Republican known nationally both for his pricey anti-immigration activism and a fruitless obsession with voter fraud " announced last week he will run to become the state's attorney general in 2022.
  • Kansas politics are about the last thing on his mind, though.
  • He has his eyes on Washington, DC "Far and away the No.
  • 1 reason why I am running is to stand between an overreaching Biden administration with unconstitutional and illegal executive orders and the people of Kansas," Kobach said during his announcement.
  • There is something darkly humorous about Kobach's run for attorney general, given that during his last stint in public service a federal judge ordered him to take remedial classes after he badly fumbled a trial to defend Kansas' strict voter registration law.
