Polls showed Colyer and Kobach were in a neck and neck battle for the nomination, and also showed Colyer lacked name recognition, with 39 perfect of respondents having no opinion of him. 

The tight race comes as President Trump on Monday endorsed Kobach for the position, calling him a “fantastic guy” who would “be a GREAT Governor.”

The current governor – who took on his role in January after Gov. Sam Brownback left state politics to join the Trump administration – raised more money than Kobach, received the National Rifle Association’s endorsement, committed to his pro-life views and earned support from Kansas political legend Bob Dole.

An early supporter of Trump’s candidacy and the former chair of the president’s now-shut down federal commission on voter fraud, Kobach is best-known nationally for his hardline stance on illegal immigration and for advising the Trump administration on immigration, non-citizen voter registration and the 2020 Census.

The state’s Democratic nomination went to State Sen. Laura Kelly, who defeated four other candidates in the primary. The 68-year-old has served 14 years in the Kansas Senate and is the top Democrat on the budget committee.

The Kansas primaries were one of several that took place Tuesday night.

In Michigan, State Attorney General Bill Schuette won the Republican nomination for governor on Tuesday night, defeating three other candidates working to fill the seat to be vacated by conservative Gov. Rick Snyder. 

Schuette, like Kobach, was also endorsed by Trump for governor.

As for the Democratic primary, Gretchen Whitmer, a former legislative leader, won the party’s nomination in the gubernatorial race.

She earned the nomination by defeating Shri Thanedar, a chemical-testing businessman, and Abdul El-Sayed, an ex-Detroit health director who was vying to become the country’s first Muslim governor.
