Kansas GOP Gubernatorial Race Tightens; Candidates Separated by 91 Votes

August 9, 2018

The too close to call Kansas GOP gubernatorial primary got even closer Thursday afternoon. Secretary of State Kris Kobach's lead over Gov. Jeff Colyer shrunk to 91 votes, as a 100 vote miscount was discovered in Thomas County. Out of over 311,000 votes counted thus far, that's a difference of about 0.03% between the two candidates. 

Provisional and mail-in ballots still need to be counted. If the final margin is less than 0.5%, which looks like will be the case here, a recount can be requested.

Here are the vote totals. This is a live feed, so numbers will be current as of the time you load the page:
