Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is planning to give a speech after months of considering a run for the U.S. Senate next year.

Kobach scheduled his event for Monday afternoon in Leavenworth. His announcement of the event did not provide any details about the topic.

But Kobach confirmed in January that he was considering running for the Republican nomination for four-term GOP Sen. Pat Roberts' seat. Roberts is not seeking re-election in 2020.

Some Republicans do not want Kobach to run for the Senate because he lost the governor's race last year to Democrat Laura Kelly.

He has a national profile as an advocate of tough immigration policies. He was an early and vocal supporter of President Donald Trump in 2016 but has frequently alienated GOP moderates.
