WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Former Republican state senatorJean Schodorf is considering a run for Kansas secretary of state next year as a Democrat. The Wichita Eagle reports that Schodorf said she's studying whether a challenge to Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach would be viable. The Wichita resident became a Democrat in January and said party members recently encouraged her to run. Schodorf was a moderate Republican who served 12 years in the Senate before conservatives successfully targeted her for defeat in the 2012 GOP primary. She has said she regretted her 2011 vote for Kobach's legislation requiring new voters to provide proof of their U.S. citizenship when registering. Mission Hills businessman Randy Rolston already has filed to run for the Democratic nomination. Kobach said any Democratic candidate will want to dismantle the photo-ID law.
