Kris Kobach Will Stay in Kansas, Not Join Trump Administration

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says he will not be taking a job in President Donald Trump's administration.
Kobach was an early Trump supporter. He was an adviser during the campaign and had some high-profile meetings with Trump after the election. That fueled speculation he could be in line for a cabinet job or other administration position.

In an interview on Fox News, Kobach put those rumors to rest.
“I have had a great relationship with the president, and I continue to advise him," said Kobach. "I’ve decided the best thing to do right now is to stay in my home state of Kansas, but I will continue to provide some advice to the president."
Kobach didn’t say what he’ll do next, but he has been considering a run for Kansas governor in 2018. Current Governor Sam Brownback is term-limited.
