WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Representative Roger Marshall won the Kansas Republican nomination to run for a seat in the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, defeating the anti-immigration firebrand Kris Kobach, the New York Times said.
Marshall, 59, was supported by establishment Republicans who feared a polarizing figure like Kobach could lose the seat in the autumn to Democrats, who might also get control of the Senate.
