“New GOP-aligned group in Kansas has Kris Kobach as apparent target”


An anonymous group with ties to Republicans has just emerged with the apparent aim of targeting Senate candidate Kris Kobach of Kansas, according to sources familiar with the effort.Kobach is an anti-immigration firebrand and voter-fraud crusader whose primary campaign has sparked fears among GOP leaders that he could jeopardize a seat crucial to keeping control of the chamber.

Plains PAC filed with the Federal Election Commission on July 1 and has booked more than $1.6 million in ads to air from now until August 3, the day before the GOP primary, according to Kantar’s Campaign Media Analysis Group. The group has informed television stations that it plans to drop negative ads against Kobach, according to the sources.It is unclear who is behind the Plains PAC. The public may not know until after the election; its FEC filing says its first report is due on August 20.
