Kansas campaigns to force Kobach off radio show

KSAL StaffJune 1, 2014

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says he expects to give up hosting a Sunday night radio talk show while he campaigns for re-election.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports it’s not Kobach’s choice to drop out of the two-hour program on Kansas City station KCMO-AM.

Federal regulations allow Kobach’s political opponents to demand equal time.

Kobach recently asked his opponent in the Aug. 5 Republican primary, Lawrence attorney Scott Morgan, to sign a waiver.

Morgan refused and said the program keeps Kobach from focusing on his state duties. Kobach said the program gives people access to an elected official.

Kobach also doesn’t expect a waiver from Democratic challenger and former state Sen. Jean Schodorf of Wichita. In 2010, Kobach’s Democratic opponent refused to sign a waiver.
