SALINA, Kan. - Shedding his reputation for being reluctant to engage, Republican Gov. Jeff Colyer came out attacking rival Kris Kobach Saturday, accusing him of misrepresentations and hypocrisies - even dragging his opponent's campaign manager into the debate.
Colyer, who hasn't been inclined to go after Kobach so far this campaign, reached into an arsenal of issues, ranging from a 14-year-old abortion controversy to Kobach using public money to pay court fines and a recent revelation that he tried to get a pardon for a campaign contributor.
A packed house at the Salina Innovation Foundation roared with applause . . .
