TOPEKA, Kansas — Kansas Republicans have nominated Rep. Roger Marshall for the U.S. Senate instead of polarizing conservative Kris Kobach of ‘We Build the Wall’ fame.

Voters on Tuesday heeded the GOP establishment’s advice as it tries to keep a normally safe seat out of play, even though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others could not persuade President Donald Trump to endorse Marshall.

Republicans haven’t lost a Senate contest in Kansas since 1932. But party leaders in Washington and many GOP activists in Kansas feared that the normally safe seat held by retiring four-term Republican Sen. Pat Roberts would be in play if the party nominated Kobach.

Kobach had promoted his work for the group ‘We Build the Wall’ as he campaigned for the Senate.

He was general counsel for ‘We Build the Wall,’ formed in late 2018 from a Go Fund Me account that raised millions of dollars to erect barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border – including a private wall that was built in Sunland Park, New Mexico.

  1. Yet …the WALL CONTINUES TO BE BUILT…

    Excellent. Very Excellent. 30ft. of “yo, illegal Latinos, S.T.F.O.!”

    Apply and immigrate legally. Like my Mexican immigrant Grandfather

    1. JamesBean, get over yourself. So this my grandparents and countless others. That doesn’t mean we should put ourselves on a pedestal like you and villify illegals and support a racist goon like DJTramp.

      1. alberto you are such a dunce. Can’t even read correctly what Jamesben said. The only POS here is you and your whole family of slime, pinchi mojado mamon. Tele tubby asshole.

    2. Gee Jamesben, I didn’t see where you put yourself on a pedestal. Just because you have Hispanic blood in you, missing in action bitch vilifies you after saying for immigrants to come here illegally. I guess that bitch should go back to got tamales and reapply.

    3. The wall will never be completed and what little has been built will be comin down soon. I watched 5 people scale the newly built part in Sunland Park just yesterday. It doesn’t stop anyone. Get over it. Good thing the people of Kansas put a stop to that unAmerican Nazi filth. He should never hold any public office in this country.
