Trump has been on the sidelines during the campaign, frustrating some Republicans, who believe that a later recognition may bring victory to Marshall, who believes that Marshall is more capable of electing.
Republican officials, including NRSC Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) According to several people familiar with the matter, the chairman recently had a dialogue with the president last week, expressing his approval of the election, and he believes that he can change the current development trajectory single-handedly. According to people familiar with the matter, internal Republican polls show that Trump’s approval will make potential Kobach supporters turn to the president’s choice.

CNN first reported the conversation. A person familiar with the thinking of the White House expressed dissent that Cruz’s remarks affected the president’s view, but admitted that it made it harder for Marshall to gain recognition.
Even without Trump’s support, all candidates rely on Trump’s name and his supporters. The GOP Super PAC, along with the Senate Leadership Foundation’s advertisement, aligns with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, published photos of Trump and Marshall. The narrator called Trump a “good friend.” In the recent Kobach advertisement, a video of a rally held by Trump in October 2018 was used extensively to promote Kobach’s governorship campaign.

With the support of the major Kansas and National Democrats, the huge cross-border support for Borrill may be doomed for Republicans in the election.
In addition to private appeals, Republicans who oppose Kobach have also been raising alarms in public. NRSC blew up Kobach on the day he announced last year. Retired Senator Pat Roberts supported Marshall last month, despite having previously stated that he would remain neutral, while the Senate Leadership Foundation spent nearly $2 million on positive advertising to promote Marshall’s development. In addition, the GOP-related Super PAC does not need to disclose its funds before the primary election. It has already spent more than $3 million on TV commercials that attack Kobach.
