Top Kansas Republicans Say They'll Back Trump; Some Others Won't

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Republican Party's chairman and other top GOP officials say they'll support Donald Trump as the party's nominee for president. But not all Republicans are ready to back the brash billionaire now that he is the presumed GOP presidential candidate. State GOP Chairman Kelly Arnold predicted Wednesday that Kansas Republicans who've opposed Trump's bid for the nomination will "come home" during the general election. Texas Senator Ted Cruz won the state's caucuses to claim 24 of its 40 convention delegates. Arnold is one of those delegates but said he will support Trump. Kansas Governor Sam Brownback and U.S. Senator Pat Roberts reiterated promises to support the GOP nominee. But state Representatives Amanda Grosserode of Lenexa and Brett Hildabrand of Shawnee said they never can support Trump. They supported Cruz.
