Kobach campaign denies he is 'extreme'

August 17, 2018 - 6:26 pm

The gubernatorial campaign of Kris Kobach is hitting back on assertions by Independent candidate Greg Orman that many Kansas Republicans view their nominee as not only extreme, but incompetent and corrupt.

Kobach's spokesman Danedri Herbert says cutting taxes and stopping illegal immigration is not extreme. She says there has not been any hint of corruption in any aspect of Kobach's career, unlike Orman's association with a former Goldman Sach's board member who was convicted of insider trading.

When that issue arose during the 2014 Senate race, Orman said in he had a "very modest" investment in a company with Rajat K. Gupta, who was convicted in 2012 of insider trading.
