Republican Kris Kobach has enlisted the help of a veteran Kansas political consultant who helped elect Phill Kline attorney general and worked for Sam Brownback when he was a U.S. senator.
Kobach spokeswoman Danedri Herbert acknowledged Thursday that the campaign has brought on board JD Johannes as a general consultant.
The campaign would not disclose Johannes’ specific role in the campaign, so it's hard to get a firm fix on just how much change this means to the campaign.
Word has been circulating that Johannes would serve as Kobach’s new campaign manager, replacing Republican state Rep. J . . .
