Another former GOP governor of Kansas just endorsed Dem Laura Kelly over Kris Kobach

A second former Republican governor of Kansas is spurning Kris Kobach’s run for the office in favor of Democrat Laura Kelly’s candidacy.

Former Kansas Gov. Mike Hayden, who served from 1987 to 1991, announced on Thursday that he is endorsing Kelly’s run for governor. He becomes the latest major GOP official along with former Gov. Bill Graves and former U.S. Sen. Nancy Kassebaum to support the state senator from Topeka.

Every living ex-governor of Kansas — except for Republican Sam Brownback — now supports Kelly over Kobach.

“After eight years of crisis, we cannot elect someone who wants to repeat the disasters of the past,” Hayden said in a statement. “Kris Kobach has promised to do just that — risking the future of our great state.”

2. When sammy brownbutt was running the 2nd time...

there were a bunch of past rightwinger kansaas politicos that got
together and pronounced him a disaster...and wouldn't support him.
I see that "after the fact" type of denouncing a lot....from them...
Those guys helped groom him and kobach...both worthless pos..and
they want to come down on them?
