Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach overcame formidable opposition from within his own party to prevail Tuesday as the Republican nominee for state attorney general.
Facing heavy opposition from the state's business interests, Kobach emerged from a three-candidate field to win the Republican nomination for attorney general.
