TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Republican Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is disputing a new television ad in which his Democratic rival in the gubernatorial race accuses him of saying the state’s schools are overfunded.

Kobach says Sen. Laura Kelly should change or take down the ad, which began airing Thursday. In the ad, Kelly says Kobach “actually says our schools are overfunded,” citing his comments at a Republican primary debate in April in Atchison, The Kansas City Star reports.

“We had the entire section over education transcribed,” Kobach said in an interview. “And nowhere did I ever say anything like that or use the word ‘overfunded.’”
