Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach was up against current Governor Jeff Colyer (former Lt. Gov. under Sam Brownback) in the Kansas GOP primary. At the moment they are still saying the race is too close to call, both at 41% and separated by about 500 votes with about 95% of the precincts counted.
So assuming this comes down to a recount, it will obviously wind up under the watchful eye of the Secretary of State’s office. How does this work? Does Kobach recuse himself from the recount? Do we start shouting “rigged election” and “voter fraud” when he declares himself the winner?
