Kobach, who made a national name for himself as a conservative lightning rod, is closing his campaign on his terms.

“He’s doubling down on what he knows and is comfortable with,” said one of the strategists, who is closely tracking the race. “Ballot security and immigration are great issues when you’re running for secretary of state, but for governor voters expect more.

Just like Trump, who is also going all in on immigration in the homestretch before the midterms, Kobach thinks he has better instincts than the political professionals and believes his path to victory first and foremost depends on ginning up his base. “If Republicans vote in big numbers, we win a statewide election,” Kobach told the volunteers. “It’s just that simple.”

Canada Goose Online After the event, as he prepared to leave Canada Goose Jackets the party office for his Fox hit, I asked him why he’s throwing so much red meat. “I think all nonpresidential elections are won or lost by motivating your own voters,” Kobach replied. “I mean that’s just because the size of the electorate is always smaller.

Kobach suggested he’d run differently if this was a presidential year. canada goose store “In a presidential election year, you have a lot of people who will have seen the presidential commercials, will be going into the polling place thinking about the president, and then they’re confronted with this long ballot,” he said. “And they haven’t really thought about the other ones. Canada Goose Parka In that type of election cycle, you have a different objective. You’re trying Canada Goose Outlet to get a message to people who may only be casually interested in your race, if you’re below the president, which is everybody.

Laura Kelly, Kobach’s Democratic challenger, noted that she’s been elected to the state Senate four times in a very red district because she’s willing to work across the aisle and stays focused on pocketbook issues, both qualities she says Kobach has never shown a willingness to even try. “Divisiveness vs. unity: That’s the major theme in this race and the major contrast between myself and Kris Kobach,” she said in an canada goose coats interview Thursday night. “Most Canada Goose sale people in Kansas really are very pragmatic and common sense and moderate. That’s what they miss here. I think Kansans are ready to be brought back together.”

Kelly was pleased when I told her that a GOP operative I’d just spoken with had complimented her message discipline. She name drops the unpopular former Republican governor Sam Brownback, who resigned in January to become an ambassador, and pivots to public education every chance she gets. “I was raised in a military family,” she said. “What can I say?”

Canada Goose Parka Several prominent former elected Republicans from the establishment wing of the party have buy pharmay cheapest. canada goose jacket endorsed Kelly over Kobach, including three term Sen.

cheap Canada Goose Graves said what worries him most, though, are the massive tax cuts Kobach is promising, which he is confident will create fiscal disaster for the state and force deeper cuts to popular programs that have already suffered. “K 12 and higher ed are on financial life support already, as it is,” said Graves. “The highway trust fund is essentially insolvent. The bond rating has been downgraded.” cheap Canada Goose.
