President Trump is having a campaign rally in Topeka, Kan., just hours after his second nomination for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, was narrowly confirmed to the Supreme Court after a bitter partisan battle.

Trump is in Kansas to rally for Republican gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach, who served as vice-chair of the administration's now-disbanded investigation into voter fraud, after the president claimed without evidence at least 3-5 million illegal votes were cast in 2016. Kobach's election integrity commission could not validate those claims.

Kobach is locked in a tight battle with Democrat Laura Kelly. Recent polls have showed the two in a virtual tie.

Kansas is a deep-red state; Trump won the state in 2016 with 56.6 percent of the vote.
