WESTERVILLE, Ohio (AP) — The Republican primary for Kansas governor is too close to call.
With election officials in Kansas halting the vote count Wednesday morning, Secretary of State Kris Kobach leads incumbent Gov. Jeff Colyer by fewer than 200 votes. It could be a few days before all absentee votes are counted.
A new state law allows ballots postmarked as of Tuesday to be counted, so long as they arrive three days after Election Day.
Kobach received a late endorsement from President Donald Trump. Colyer received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association and had the backing of Kansas political legend Bob Dole.
