Kansas Rep. Marshall faces criticism in GOP Senate debate

 A Kansas congressman running for the Senate facing questions over a 12-year-old misdemeanor criminal case and for missing votes while treating coronavirus patients. 

The criticism of Rep. Roger Marshall came during a Wednesday night debate in Wichita. Marshall sought to portray GOP primary rival Kris Kobach as an iffy prospect for the November general election. 

Kobach cited a 2008 criminal case in which the son of a Marshall business partner helped him get the charge changed from misdemeanor reckless driving to a lesser traffic infraction. 

When Kobach also criticized Marshall for missing votes, he said it was "about as low as you can get.”
