Kansas Secretary of State Chris Biggs is signing a pledge to work full time in that job if voters decide in November to keep him in office.


Kansas Secretary of State Chris Biggs is signing a pledge to work full time in that job if voters decide in November to keep him in office.

Biggs, a Democrat, is using a Thursday news conference to raise an issue about Republican nominee Kris Kobach's (KOH'-bahk's) work on immigration issues.

Kobach is a law professor who advises city officials and legislators in other states about cracking down on illegal immigration. He helped write a new Arizona law this year.

Kobach has said he will be a full-time secretary of state but still handle some immigration work in his spare time.

Biggs not only will sign a pledge to be a full-time secretary of state, but challenge Kobach do it, too.
