Provisional and mail-in ballots still need counted in race that is too close to call

Capitol Bureau

Gov. Jeff Colyer was expected to address the media today, but at about 9 a.m., his campaign said he would not be addressing the media since this race is too close to call.

He did address his supporters at about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday at his watch party. Colyer remained confident that when all the ballots are counted he would pull off a win.

Kris Kobach is the unofficial winner by less than 200 votes. Election officials said there are about 8,000 to 10,000 provision and mail-in ballots that need counting. 

This morning, Republican leaders gathered in Topeka for a unity breakfast. They talked about the importance of rallying behind whoever the nominee ends up being.

“One thing we saw is a lot of conservatives support our Republicans, and one thing we saw is a lot of conservatives got a lot of votes, you know Kansas is still a conservative state and will use that going into the election,” said Kelly Arnold, Kansas Republican Party chairman.
