BILL HEMMER (CO-HOST): Some fallout from the voter fraud investigation that you were a big part of. Has that been a drag on you, sir? 

KRIS KOBACH (KANSAS SECRETARY OF STATE): Oh, not at all, no. Kansans know that I came in as secretary of state promising to bring proof of citizenship and photo ID to Kansas elections. And we have proven many cases of people who are not U.S. citizens who registered and voted in Kansas elections. And that's true not just in Kansas, that's true all across this country. The fallout, so to speak, is the people on the left who say well sure, Kobach, you proved a few cases, or a few hundred, or in some instances a few thousand cases of people voting fraudulently, but that's not enough. Of course it's never enough for the left. You can show them a million cases and they'll still say that's not enough cases of voter fraud to worry about it.
