The Latest: Kobach in Kansas Delegation to GOP Convention

KSAL StaffMay 15, 2016

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Secretary of State Kris Kobach, State Treasurer Ron Estes and an anti-abortion leader will be part of the Kansas delegation to the Republican National Convention this summer.

The GOP State Committee on Saturday selected the last 25 of the state’s 40 delegates to the convention in July in Cleveland.

Kobach was the most prominent elected official in Kansas to endorse presumed GOP nominee Donald Trump before the state’s March 5 caucuses.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz won the caucuses decisively and will have 24 of the state’s delegates, to nine for Trump, six for Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, and one for Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

Estes endorsed Rubio.

The delegation also will include Executive Director Mary Kay Culp of Kansans for Life. It’s the most influential anti-abortion group at the Statehouse.
