The Wall Street Journal: Kris Kobach launches bid for Kansas Senate seat

WASHINGTON—Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach on Monday launched a run for U.S. Senate, vowing to make an aggressive response to illegal immigration the top issue in his campaign and triggering alarm in Republicans who fear his divisive candidacy could cost the party an otherwise solid seat.

“Our borders are being overrun,“ Mr. Kobach, 53 years old, told cheering supporters at a community center in Leavenworth, Kansas, flanked by his wife and five daughters and standing in front of a post that read, ”Kobach, U.S. Senate. Build the Wall.”

He added that he spoke with President Trump a few days before on the phone about illegal immigration.
