Colyer says he will wait to start general election campaign

August 08, 2018 - 8:47 pm

Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer says he will wait until the results of the GOP primary race for governor are final before he begins a campaign for the general election.

Colyer responded after Secretary of State Kris Kobach said earlier Wednesday that he would immediately begin campaigning against his Democrat opponent, Laura Kelly.

Kobach led Colyer by fewer than 200 votes after Tuesday's election. The outcome will be determined by thousands of provisional and mail-in ballots that have yet to be counted.

Colyer says he is hopeful and "very confident" the final vote will give him the GOP nomination. But he said he would be happy to work with Kobach should he win.
