There’s recently been a war of words between Republican Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Democrat Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. KPR’s Stephen Koranda reports.

Kobach put in place a new rule that cancels incomplete Kansas voter registrations after 90 days. Clinton’s campaign calls that a “full-court press” of voting restrictions. The campaign says Clinton wants automatic voter registration and more early voting opportunities.

Kobach fired back, saying Kansas has the most secure election system in the country. He calls Clinton’s plan a “federal takeover” of voter registration.
