Graves Endorses Roberts
October 22, 2014

(AP)–Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach is likely to face questions during a televised debate about a proof-of-citizenship requirement for new Kansas voters enacted at his urging.

Kobach makes his second televised joint appearance with Democratic challenger Jean Schodorf on Wednesday night from the studio of Topeka public television station KTWU.

Kobach is seeking a second four-year term. He successfully pushed the Legislature to enact a 2013 law that requires new voters to provide election officials a birth certificate, passport or other proof of U.S. citizenship.

Schodorf voted for the policy as a state senator but says Kobach has poorly administered it.

Kobach contends the requirement prevents voter fraud. But the voter registrations of thousands of Kansas residents are on hold because they haven’t yet complied.

Romney in for Roberts in OP Monday
October 21, 2014

(AP) – Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney plans to campaign for Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts in suburban Kansas City next week, the latest national figure working to save the embattled three-term incumbent.

Romney is to headline a rally with Roberts next Monday at the Prairie Fire shopping and residential complex in Overland Park.

In a statement, Romney calls Roberts “a conservative champion for Kansas.” The former Massachusetts governor has also endorsed Senate nominees in battlegrounds such as Colorado, Iowa and Louisiana.

Romney in recent weeks has stepped back into the limelight, acting as a national GOP leader in a party searching for one.

Roberts is facing independent candidate Greg Orman, an Olathe businessman, in what has become a surprisingly competitive race in GOP-heavy Kansas.

Kansas Forms Ebola Team
October 21, 2014

(AP) – Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has ordered the creation of a special team to respond quickly to any suspected Ebola cases in the state.

The governor’s office also wants to come up with $4 million that could be used in an emergency and is calling on the federal government to provide an emergency cleanup team and federal disposal of Ebola-related waste.

Brownback says in a news release he also has ordered the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to develop a plan for the state that includes stronger rules on protective gear and isolation than what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention requires.

Kansas has had no confirmed cases of Ebola.
