TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s office says it had no written or email correspondence with national Republican groups or U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts’ re-election campaign as a legal dispute over the contest unfolded.

Kobach’s office responded this week to an open records request from The Associated Press.

The request sought copies of written and email correspondence from Aug. 25 through Sept. 19 between Kobach and top aides with two national GOP groups, Roberts and his top campaign aides.

The legal dispute stems from Democrat Chad Taylor’s withdrawal from the Senate race. A three-judge panel in Shawnee County District Court is reviewing a voter’s lawsuit aimed at forcing Kansas Democrats to name a new nominee.

Taylor’s move was seen has helping independent candidate Greg Orman’s chances of defeating Roberts.
