Kris Kobach Insists That Democrats Find A Replacement Senatorial Candidate

The Kansas Supreme Court has unanimously ruled that Democrat Chad Taylor can withdraw from the U.S Senate race and remove his name from the ballot for the election this November.

However, Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach is insisting that Democrats quickly name a replacement candidate.

In light of the upset, the U.S. Justice Department has agreed to allow Kansas a week's delay in mailing ballots to military overseas.

Republican Senator Pat Roberts' campaign manager is calling the Kansas Supreme Court's decision to remove his Democratic opponent from the ballot a travesty.

Independent candidate Greg Orman's campaign manager said yesterday that Orman would run against a broken political system no matter how many candidates were on the ballot.
