Democrat Kicks Off Campaign To Win Back Kansas House Seat

Topeka Democrat Ann Mah kicked off her campaign for the Kansas House Monday.

Mah served in the House for eight years before losing to Topeka Republican Ken Corbet by only 21 votes last November.

Mah was the Legislature's most vocal critic of Secretary of State Kris Kobach. A political action committee formed by Kobach backed Corbet.

After the 2012 election, Mah fought successfully in court to obtain the names of voters whose ballots had been set aside by election officials, in hopes of contacting them and helping them correct problems.

Kansas Democrat Won't Force Recount After Losing By 21 Votes

A Democratic legislator who's been a critic of Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach says she won't seek a recount after losing her race for re-election by 21 votes out of nearly 11,000 cast.

State Representative Ann Mah of Topeka said Friday that a recount probably wouldn't change the outcome of the 54th House District contest. She lost to Republican challenger Ken Corbet of Topeka.

The district covers parts of Douglas, Shawnee and Osage counties. The last reviews of ballots - in Shawnee County - finished late Thursday.

Rep. Ann Mah of Topeka is trying to avert a narrow election loss.

Democratic Party officials gave The Associated Press a copy of Mah's petition before it was filed in Shawnee County District Court Friday.

Mah trails Republican challenger Ken Corbet of Topeka by 27 votes out of almost 11,000 cast. She says she wants to ensure that all provisional votes are counted and that maybe 150 votes are in play.
