The candidates for Kansas governor will square off this week for the final debate hosted by the state Republican Party. It signals the home stretch before the August 7th primary.

The Kansas GOP organized four formal debates around the state, and the final one will be held at Johnson County Community College on Thursday.

The campaigns will soon be shifting to mobilizing their supporters for the primary, according to Jim Joice, the executive director of the Kansas Republican Party. Advance ballots start going out next week.

“This debate goes, and then everyone’s going to be focused on early voting, advanced ballots and making sure they turn out their folks," Joice said.

The campaign has been intensifying. At the last debate, Governor Jeff Colyer traded barbs with his main competitor, Secretary of State Kris Kobach. The two sparred over abortion issues and government spending.
