Hours after the polls closed in Kansas Tuesday night, the state is still awaiting the results of the GOP primary nomination in the heated race between Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and incumbent Gov. Jeff Colyer.

"I'm here to tell you: right here right now, come November, the red wave is coming right through MI", he said.
