In the press release from the Kobach campaign, Danedri Herbert, Kansans for Kobach communications director said,
“The poll also shows that Jim Barnett is the obvious choice of moderate Republicans, especially those who favor Medicaid expansion.”
Herbert also stated,
“Our lead in the poll reveals why the Colyer campaign has launched so many desperate, negative attacks against Kris Kobach, and it explains why the liberal, George Soros-funded ACLU, and dark money groups are spending resources in Kansas for Colyer. They know Colyer will cave on issues that are important to conservatives, and they know Kris Kobach is a consistent conservative who won’t back down.”
