Shock and awe! Kansas voters nailed the coffin shut last week on the discredited Brownback era. They chose a bipartisan path forward by electing Democratic state Sen. Laura Kelly as governor and soundly rejecting her opponent, Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

Kobach was embraced by President Donald Trump, but campaign rallies on Kobach’s behalf by Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and Donald Trump Jr. could not overcome Kelly’s disciplined campaign.
