Secretary of State Kris Kobach says he'll start prosecuting voter fraud cases in September and will focus on cases of double voting from the 2010 election.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has raised more money for his re-election campaign this year than his two opponents combined.

Kobach’s campaign filed a report Monday saying it raised almost $105,000 from January through July 24, in addition to the $125,000 he had at the start of the year. He spent less than $32,000, leaving him with more than $198,000.

Kobach’s foe in the Aug. 5 Republican primary is Lawrence businessman and attorney Scott Morgan. He entered the race in May and reported raising about $21,000. Morgan spent less than $4,000, leaving him with $17,000 in cash.

Democrat and former state Sen. Jean Schodorf began the year with nearly $41,000 and raised almost $63,000 more. But she also spent almost $95,000, leaving her campaign with less than $9,000.
