Kobach's negatives helped to elect a Democratic governor in Kansas last November.
Any anti-Kobach efforts by groups such as the National Republican Senatorial Committee or the Senate Leadership Fund likely would take the form of undermining Kobach without actively supporting any of the other GOP candidates running against him.
“They’ll do some actual spending if it comes to that,” said Jennifer Duffy, senior editor for The Cook Political Report, a publication that analyzes U.S. Senate and Governors races. “They’ll talk about electability, they’ll talk about some of his controversies. I don’t think they want a slash-and-burn effort, but their goal will be to disqualify without at this point getting behind a candidate.”
