"It's a great time for everybody to come and find out what their views are and bend their ears a little bit."
Kobach is the co-author of the Arizona Immigration Bill and made a proposal Tuesday for voters to be required to show a photo I.D. when they go to the polls. This will be Kobach's first public speaking engagement since he was elected.
