Ex-Kan. House member launches bid to regain seat

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A former Kansas House member who narrowly lost her seat in 2012 has launched a campaign to regain it next year.

Topeka Democrat Ann Mah kicked off her comeback bid Monday. She served eight years in the House before losing to Topeka Republican Ken Corbet by 21 votes out more than 10,800 cast last November.

Mah was the Legislature's most vocal critic of Republican 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.

But this year, legislators changed state law to bar the release of the names of provisional voters.
