TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Republican state lawmaker has launched a campaign for Kansas attorney general with a dig at polarizing conservative and rival Kris Kobach.

State Sen. Kellie Warren of Leawood immediately played to some Republicans’ fears about whether Kobach can win in November 2022.

Warren is chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and was at the center of debates over the state’s coronavirus pandemic response. She released a campaign video declaring that she fights for conservative values and wins.

It was a dig at Kobach. He lost the governor’s race in 2018 and a GOP primary for U.S. Senate in 2020. Kobach suggested Warren isn’t qualified to be attorney general.
