Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach secured the Republican nomination for governor when his opponent, incumbent Gov. Jeff Colyer, conceded Tuesday evening. The latest vote count showed the Trump-endorsed Kobach had a razor-thin lead of 345 votes over Colyer out of more than 311,000 votes counted from last week’s GOP primary. Colyer’s concession followed a contentious week in which the candidates threatened to demand a recount, hinted at lawsuits, and sent observers to monitor the county-by-county provisional ballot review.
