Kansas governor concedes defeat in Republican primary

Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer has conceded in the state’s Republican gubernatorial primary, saying he’ll endorse Secretary of State Kris Kobach per week after their neck-and-neck end threatened to ship the race to a recount.

Colyer accepted defeat Tuesday night after a evaluate of some provisional ballots from most Kansas counties failed to seek out sufficient votes for him to beat a deficit of 110 votes on the time of ballot closing in the Aug. 7 primary, out of greater than 311,000 votes initially counted.

Kobach will face Democrat Laura Kelly in the November basic election.

Colyer is a 58-year-old plastic surgeon from suburban Kansas Metropolis. He served as lieutenant governor for seven years and took over as governor in January when Sam Brownback resigned to turn into ambassador-at-large for worldwide spiritual freedom.

Kobach had the help of U.S. President Donald Trump.
