Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach tried a run at the U.S. Senate and it did not go well. On Tuesday, the Associated Press reported that Kobach was the projected loser in the state’s Republican primary.
Kobach has been a longtime anti-immigration advocate. He also headed Donald Trump’s so-called “voter fraud commission” before it was disbanded after failing to identify any widespread instances of fraud.
This also isn’t Kobach’s first defeat. In 2018 he tried running for governor of his state and also lost.
This prompted voters to troll Kobach over his losing streak. Take a look at some of the best responses below:

Kris Kobach's watch party is the most attended watch party in the history of watch parties. I know because Sean Spicer told me. pic.twitter.com/ZSA7leR5DY

I know the national news from a Kobach loss is that it makes it harder for the Democrats to retake the Senate, but what does it say about the future of Trumpism after Trump that so many Republicans in a state like Kansas keep walking away from it?

Can't tell you how pleased I am to see Kris Kobach's face shoved in the dirt. Adios amigo.

3 things to be happy about tonight:
1. Kris Kobach not being in government
2. the craziest son of a bitch in the race theorem hitting its limit
3. Peter Thiel is sad and hopefully getting disenchanted with politics.

On the bright side: Kobach will not be anywhere near the U.S. Senate come January

The far-right folks kept telling their followers that political success was "inevitable" because most conservatives secretly agree with them. Turns out that isn't true–at least at the ballot box. I have lots of theories on why that might be but for now, pour one out for Kobach
