TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has formally launched his campaign for re-election, calling himself a "guardian of state sovereignty." The Republican secretary of state filed for office Wednesday and paid a $1,360 fee to guarantee his spot on the August 5 GOP primary ballot. He'll face Lawrence attorney and businessman Scott Morgan in the primary. Morgan contends that Kobach hasn't been a full-time secretary of state and has spent too much of his time on issues unrelated to the office. But Kobach says he does outside work on his own time and defended his interest in issues such as immigration and opposition to the federal government's listing of the lesser prairie chicken as threatened. Kobach said the secretary of state should defend state sovereignty.
