Kansas Statewide Races

KSCB News - November 3, 2010 12:00 am

Republicans have swept all statewide offices

in Kansas, ousting an incumbent Democratic attorney general,

secretary of state and state treasurer.

Republican Kris Kobach defeated Secretary of State Chris Biggs.

Kobach is a Kansas City-area law professor who helped write

Arizona’s new immigration law, but he made combatting election

fraud the centerpiece of his campaign.

Kansas Senate Majority Leader Derek Schmidt defeated Attorney

General Steve Six. The incumbent’s refusal to have Kansas challenge

the new federal health care law was a big issue in the race.

State Treasurer Dennis McKinney lost to Sedgwick County Ron

Estes.

All three Democratic incumbents had been appointed by Democratic

governors to fill midterm vacancies.
