Former state Rep. Mark Hut­ton (R) said “he is weigh­ing a run. … He said he would prefer to make a de­cision ‘soon­er rather than later’ and that he ex­pects the call some­time in Ju­ly at the latest. … He in­dic­ated … that he would at­tempt to stake out a middle ground between the party’s mod­er­ate and con­ser­vat­ive wings.”

Hut­ton: “I am look­ing pretty ser­i­ously at wheth­er or not I want to take a run at that of­fice.” (Wichita Eagle)

KOBACH TO THE DRAW­ING BOARD. Kan­sas Sec­ret­ary of State Kris Kobach (R) was slated to “speak at the Faith and Free­dom Pic­nic in John­son County on Sat­urday that was pro­moted with the slo­gan ‘Olathe Lives Mat­ter!’ … Dav­id Light­ner, chair­man of the Olathe Re­pub­lic­an Party, said that each year the party in­cludes a line in its in­vit­a­tions ‘that gets a little hu­mor out there,’ and that the party ‘didn’t mean any­thing’ by the ap­par­ent ref­er­ence to the Black Lives Mat­ter slo­gan that has been used by act­iv­ists to protest po­lice shoot­ings of Afric­an-Amer­ic­ans.” (Kan­sas City Star)
