On a grander scale, in 2012, an erosion-control company, contracted to reseed and groom land disturbed by drilling and pipeline companies, shut down suddenly, costing several locals their jobs, including Shaw's brother Brandon. Shaw looked into the prospects of starting a similar company, and since opening in January 2013, the business has hired 40 areas residents, with plans to hire more.

You talked about America and its crumbling infrastructure. A lot has been written about crime in Chicago, for example. The state of the country, whether it is crime, or state finances, or infrastructure, all of that is conflated into this idea that America has been deteriorating.

The fundamental factors in the marketplace, whether it's mortgages, whether it's metals or agricultural products, not much has changed. Duffy:
I don't see it changing anytime soon, only because there are so many structures out there that still look like they did in 1995, in 2005, outside of technology. It's hard to say that markets are going to evolve in a different manner in the next two to three years. I just don't see that happening.

Everyone was losing their shirts, and he was raking in $2 billion to $3 billion paychecks. "I always read the rankings of the hedge fund managers and how much they made in a year," he says. Winning the bet on Africa Oil proved it. "The stars were aligning," says Guindo. "So I was like, I need to start going down a path of my own. " He wanted to build assets and manage them — he just needed an expertise in something, and more and more he concluded oil and gas was it. "In 2008, I was fascinated by John Paulson and how much money he had made.

When they legalized marijuana and it's still so controversial, it could still be harmful or could lead to people using other drugs, but a bunch of states still legalized it, why is that so different from this? I don't want to be sophomoric about this. I don't want to draw a bad analogy, but I think there's a point where people need to say, "It's there. They're doing it anyway. You know what I relate it to?

That's sometimes just as important, if not more important, than dismantling the ones on the books. Anybody in this town who knows about regulations knows laws are hard to change. I think that's what gave the market the comfort to do what it did. One of the things that people got excited about, especially the markets after the president-elect got elected, was that it wasn't so much a case of dismantling existing laws as no new ones were coming.

It is mostly unions doing the road, so this is all their people's jobs, if you want to call them that. Duffy:
First of all, for an infrastructure bill, every Democrat would be out of their mind if they didn't vote for it.

Laws are difficult to pass either way. I think certain things need to happen. And so I think people talk about dismantling Dodd-Frank, the president-elect has talked a lot about that. But to say it's going to be gutted, I don't think we are going to go back to 2007 again. So now the legislation is passed you have to change it, and put something else in place or do something with it. But I don't see a massive deregulation, like some people might think is coming, only because it is very difficult to do. The easiest thing to do in Washington is to kill a piece a legislation; the hardest thing in Washington to do is to pass a piece of legislation.

He is close friends with John Boehner, the former Speaker of the House of Representatives. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton name-checked him on the campaign trail
. He has photographs of himself with Michael Phelps, Peyton Manning, and Derek Jeter. and Jeb Bush, winning a negligible sum from the former president. Duffy just played golf with George W. It's not just security guards who take to the 57-year-old executive.

Our plans for that are solid and we're doing quite well. My focus has been to look more at Hong Kong — not to acquire something in Hong Kong, but to have more salesforce people there to help get more business there, make it more streamlined, and get the business from mainland China that comes through Hong Kong.

Now I understand how some political folks might think that it's opening Pandora's box and we will just be condoning bad behavior. I just think it needs to be done. Duffy:
I have been an advocate for a repatriation bill for the last five to 1o years.

No, I think what's important is that you have to remember that if a client is trading his own money, it's his own money. If a hedge fund or a mutual fund or sell side or big buy-side participant is trading what they call institutional money, you have to remember you have to go back, and say, "OK, where did this money come from? " Even though it's institutional money, it came from somebody.

He may not be in a good mood right now. Duffy:
Yes, it is, and I think you need to know the client and understand the client. You don't know, so you need to understand the client. That's something I think we've gotten a little bit away from. And if the client wants XYZ, then you'd better know the price of XYZ before you walk in and talk to the client about whatever the hell you were trying to sell them.Multifamily construction increased in several Districts including Boston, Chicago, and San Francisco. The Cleveland, Dallas, and San Francisco Districts said apartment demand remained strong. New home construction continued to pick up in most Districts, although the Richmond District said that a low supply of residential building materials had stalled construction. Only the Philadelphia District noted that residential construction decelerated somewhat, although home sales were still growing moderately. The New York District noted apartment rents accelerated in early 2013, due to stronger demand coupled with historically low inventories.

Yes, because otherwise you've got the same participants all going the same way the same exact time. Whether it's high-frequency traders, prop traders, or anybody else, it doesn't really matter who they are, but we need to have more diverse trading in all market places.

I'm a firm believer in that, if you've got a little, give a little, if you've got a lot, give a lot. That's the way we look at it. We're very much involved in the civic community of Chicago and Illinois and New York, because part of our business is here. But if you're going to do nothing and bitch about it, then nothing is going to happen.

Farid Guindo is sitting at a corner table with a view onto East 55th Street. Don't let the casual attire mislead. He has his sights set on someday, and someday soon, being a master of the universe just like many of his fellow Core club members. In a casual navy blazer, open-collared oxford and jeans, he seems more ready to trade movie scripts than stock portfolios.

But first he makes a point about what separates him from many of the people he has left behind. It is really hard psychologically to start and run a business, put your money into it and cross your fingers. "My peer group, they want to stay in New York. In the dining room of the Core, a waiter clears Guindo's plate. " He takes a second to consider his next words. Most guys just want to be at the big-name shop. "I have second thoughts all the time, but I have to stick to my instincts, which are pointing me toward staying in the deep end. He's ready to move on to his next meeting and then to the airport. It is more comfortable.

You have to continue to be there, continue to work, but at the same time you have to be very mindful of the cost when you decide to invest in a place that's supposedly going to open up their markets, but you don't know when.

Ever since the boom, tankers and other heavy-duty trucks have made for traffic nightmares near Carrollton Square. They're learning as well in Carrollton. "It used to take five minutes to go through the center of town at noon," says one local.

The Senate is not veto-proof. So even though the Republicans control the majority, it is a very slim majority. Duffy:
Well, I don't have a crystal ball, and you can only go off what you hear on the administration and what they are saying, and what some of the people they're putting into the administration to advise them are saying. I have to be honest with you.

Guindo knows that is a possibility. He's aware of cycles, and he sees what is taking place in Pennsylvania. That's why he left New York City and moved to Ohio. He is a student of the oil business. "Even when I was working in the investment world," he says, "I wasn't chasing the rabbits; I was after the elephants. But right now he is confident of his play in Carroll County.

It turns out they were doing seismographic testing. And one day he noticed large trucks pounding the ground on the highway near his farm. "That made us wonder," Kiko recalls. But by 2010, Kiko's luck started to change. Milk prices rebounded, for starters.

We're focused on that. If we look after our clients, in return our shareholders will get rewarded. And then our employees will get rewarded. There's an equation in our world. When I say broadening the base, my focus is the client, all of the clients. We want them to know we are focused on their needs.

Something was percolating in Carroll County, Ohio. He read Institutional Investor
 religiously. Guindo was the vice-president of portfolio management for the McGill Investment Club. From his base in New York City, Guindo followed the action and what it could mean to him and his dream. Since his first days of college, he had been reading books on Warren Buffett, George Soros, Edward Lampert.

I mean, who has the best bid and offer? And if you look at Reg NMS, that came into play in 2007. There are loopholes in the system that allowed them to do so. It's got to be in nanoseconds. Who knew what Reg NMS could do when computers could start to see these heat-seeking missiles going from the NYSE to Nasdaq to backrooms? HFT wasn't even around in 2007.

So we took your hundred dollars, my hundred dollars, and his hundred dollars, and next thing you know someone is trading $1o billion dollars, and they call it institutional money. The problem is that you have to remind yourself that that client is trading someone else's individual money. You have to approach it in that vein, so I still think there's a personal touch, even though it's institutional."I always wanted to be an investor," he says between bites of breakfast, scrambled eggs garnished with salmon. He envisioned being the next Dwight Anderson, not working for him. Over the next 22 months, Guindo — impatient, laser-focused — made the needed connections, spotted the target of his future fortunes and, more important, cultivated the money that would get him to where he wanted to go. And yet he was already planning ahead.

Overall upward wage pressures continued to be fairly modest. The Kansas City District noted wage increases for commercial truck drivers, and the Richmond District reported widespread wage increases in the service sector. Rising healthcare costs were a concern among contacts in a few Districts, including Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Chicago. Several Districts reported wage pressures in sectors experiencing labor shortages, such as information technology, construction, and engineering. There were a few exceptions, however.

The bets that they put down could be dramatic, because of how the world is going to change. There are going to be a lot of people in business, not just people running exchanges, but people in business generally who are going to have to make some pretty tough decisions.

Staffing firms in the Cleveland and Chicago Districts noted an increase in orders from the manufacturing sector, and several manufacturers in the St. Labor market conditions remained unchanged or improved slightly, and reports of hiring were more widespread in the manufacturing, residential construction, information technology, and professional services sectors.

In contrast, hiring activity was limited in the Boston and Cleveland Districts, demand for staffing services softened in the Dallas District, and some Districts, including Richmond and Atlanta, reported restrained hiring due to uncertainty over fiscal policy or healthcare reform. Contacts in several Districts faced difficulties finding highly trained or skilled workers, especially in the information technology and engineering fields. The Chicago District cited a stronger job market for new college graduates and more competition among employers to fill intern positions. In particular, a lumber and wood products firm in the Philadelphia District said the firming housing market had resulted in the best growth prospects in five years.

Numerous Districts reported uncertainty or weakness in military or defense-related sectors.

Around the area, word spread that land men working for Chesapeake Energy and Rex Oil, the two primary drillers eyeing Carroll County, were scouting farms and offering to lease land for future drilling sites. Back in the 1980s, Kiko leased some of his land to an oil company for $2 to $3 an acre. Leasing wasn't unheard of. Even though the drillers never came, says Kiko, "that money paid some taxes.

And we'll have the same amount of acreage in 2050 as we do today. What I do see happening is by 2050 we could be feeding 9 billion people in the world. We have roughly 7 billion today. What's the cost of that going to be? So how is that market going to evolve?

If something happens, we either all pull out or we all go the same way, and we don't have anyone taking the opposite side of the trade. It could be better, but you've got to remember: The liquidity is getting consolidated among a handful of participants, which is never good. I think that is healthier because I don't like it when liquidity goes in one direction. I like when it is diversified.The Philadelphia District commented that there was not much change in nonresidential activity during the reporting period, but that contracts for repair work from Hurricane Sandy have yet to be approved. Contacts in the Richmond District cited a tight supply of class A office space and said there were several large projects under construction in the Washington D.

Expectations for future transportation activity were generally positive in most Districts. Shipping volume in the Cleveland District met or exceeded expectations, with increases driven by the energy sector, rerouting of container traffic, and residual effects from Hurricane Sandy.

"I am always looking for the next evolution," he says. well, then, maybe it will be time to start drilling and live up to his firm's name. And if his plan works in Ohio, then Guindo has thoughts of extending his hotel chain throughout the country, to other oil and gas areas.

Residential real estate activity continued to strengthen in most Districts, although the pace of growth varied.

Cold weather delayed field preparation for spring planting in the Richmond and Chicago Districts.

Hedge fund managers and real estate billionaires and high-powered sports executives pay a $50,000 initiation fee and $15,000 in annual dues for access to the club's amenities — the spa and salon, the Zoomtion fitness center — and the privacy afforded so they can talk big business without worry of prying ears." I think that applies to markets and everyday life. It's something that affects us all, and it's real, and I don't think people can debate it. But the problem is, if we did everything right here in the US, and in Europe, you wouldn't change a damn thing unless China and India do the right thing, too. We've got to get together more as a global group of people, to say "Let's do the right thing. Let's take climate control, global warming, for example.

It's in Carrollton, a few blocks from Donna's Deli and near a Chevrolet dealership, that Guindo has recently opened an 80-room extended-stay hotel, the Microtel Inn today the daily haul is more than a million barrels, or more than 10 percent of the U. With those figures as benchmarks, Carroll County became ground zero for the next potential boom.

Sometimes it's hard to look ahead when you are 26, and busy, and building a hotel, and hoping—expecting — to fill it every night. He also has plans to open a hotel southwest of Carroll County. There's talk that another boom will soon be setting off there. Friends and family have invested in him because he told them he had a plan: to make money on the oil play. Now he knows he has to deliver a return. In total he has $11 million under management. He's working with not only his money but other people's, too. Besides the $5 million going into the hotel in Carrollton, he broke ground recently on a property in a county south of Carroll. He sees no reason he won't. But Guindo knows he must.

Yes, the sun, right now, seems to always be shining in eastern Ohio and in Carroll County. Or just go over the border to Pennsylvania, where many residents continue to enjoy their first-ever oil and gas rewards, but others, suddenly, know the bitter side. But talk to the folks in Midland, Texas, or Houston, or Tulsa, Oklahoma — areas that are back to good times but only after booms brought busts that erased riches and jobs and caused hotels to go dormant.

He did all this so when he went into Bill Newell's office, he was ready to buy. He learned that processing, not just drilling, would be taking place in the area, ensuring even more local business. When he scouted the region on different occasions, he had a map of Carroll County marked with drill sites; he drove along the country roads abutting farms, looking for drill pads, and making sure what he saw on his map matched what he saw from the roadside.

In a town without hedge funds, or a Core club. In a town that knows poverty and is only now trying to figure out wealth. He thinks he has found it — in Appalachia of all places, in an Ohio town with fewer than 3,300 residents, in a town where the most popular restaurant, Donna's Deli, closes after the noontime rush. In a town of five streetlights and with a mayor who's also a minister and who sometimes preaches on Sundays about the virtue of frugality.

I'm not a Chinese expert, I'll tell you that right now. We're an impatient bunch here in the US. It's difficult over there. It's like a different world. The Europeans are probably the second-most impatient, and [the British] are calm, and then you have the Asian community where 50 years is like tomorrow. People say the markets are going open up. Yeah, they probably will someday.

So whether that's taking $21 trillion of interest-rate swaps and compressing them to $15 trillion or $16 trillion, compressing so many different line items, that saves the dealers a tremendous amount of money. We have to come up with creative ways to benefit the client by creating more capital efficiencies. That's what we are doing. And that's a benefit to the client. Duffy:
It has played out in a couple ways. Because of regulation and the world we live in now, the cost of capital has gone up. That's what I want to keep doing. There's a lot of capital saved by doing that.

Several Districts, including Boston, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Minneapolis, Kansas City, and San Francisco, said prices for some construction materials rose since the last report, but there were few reports of pass-through. The majority of Districts said overall price pressures remained minimal during the reporting period.

It's the start of the year so everyone is just getting ramped up again. So the markets don't take the breaks that they used to. It's not like it used to be when I first started in the business, when November was kind of the shut-off date and the start date wasn't until probably like February 1. Terrence Duffy:
Business is good. Now they don't quit because it's so global now. There was a two-month hiatus for the market place.

Residential real estate activity continued to improve in most Districts, and some Districts, including Cleveland, Richmond, Chicago, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Dallas, and San Francisco, noted increased momentum since the last report.

Experts predict that the United States will be the world's largest producer of oil by 2015 and that by 2040 50 percent of the country's natural gas will come from the shale-rock formations igniting the current surge. Spurred by hydraulic fracturing, which over the past decade has unearthed once-unknown oil and natural gas reserves deep underground, America's energy industry is now pumping at historic levels.

Kobach advised the campaign on issues such as illegal immigration, publicly proposing a way for the U. to force Mexico to pay for a wall along their border. Kobach was the most prominent state official to endorse the elder Trump before the state's presidential caucuses in March 2016 and has said he met the president's son through a mutual friend.

It wasn't that they saw the orders — it's because of the regulations. Computers are chasing it, and the high-frequency guys had an advantage. I'm not saying the guys did anything wrong, because this is the way the markets were set up.

Why do you think prop trading should be allowed? The Fed released a staff paper on December 22
focused on the Volcker Rule and found that the rule had had a negative effect on corporate-bond liquidity. That seems to be the direction of travel. Turner:
It's interesting that you've said the banks should be allowed to proprietary trade.

Detroit is a great example. Jamie Dimon, with JPMorgan, has put a big investment in to Detroit. I have friends in Detroit, and I looked at it personally to do some stuff there. I'm not saying Detroit is going to come back or not, but you have to look at geographic locations in the United States, and say, "OK, what makes sense?

Rockefeller, then just richer when the dust settles, whenever that will be. Yes, the Exxons, the ConocoPhillips, the Chevrons still dominate the upper tier of the energy landscape. And a glance through their annual reports display upper-management portraits with seemingly xeroxed profiles: CEOs in their fifties and sixties with 25-plus years of experience, all male, all white. What can't be debated, though, is that the boom has created a new wave of speculators and entrepreneurs and businesspeople, each hoping to be, if not a new oil baron in the tradition of John D.

Louis and San Francisco reported strong demand for technology, logistics, marketing and legal services. Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Kansas City services contacts continued to be optimistic about growth in the coming months and in the second half of 2013.

Guindo sold when the stock had climbed to around $9. "How do you actually make money? Africa Oil went through the roof. He took his money and looked beyond New York City. For something even bigger. "I felt comfortable in my own shoes to say, What is out there? " A few months later, he left Ospraie. He grossed close to a million dollars.

(Thad Allton/Topeka Capital-Journal via AP) " Alford made the comments Saturday during a public meeting at a hospital in Garden City. Alford, arguing against the legalization of any use of marijuana, suggested that it and other drugs were originally outlawed in part because blacks were "basically users" and "responded worst" to the drugs because of their "character makeup _ their genetics and that. Steve Alford, R-Ulysses, sits in the Kansas House at the start of the 2018 legislative session Monday, Jan.

The downside is, it goes from $1. Guindo still liked Africa Oil. "The upside is, it goes through the roof. "The downside," he says, "was that they drill a couple of wells and it doesn't work. He put $100,000 of his own cash in the stock as a personal investment.

The majority of Districts reported modest improvements in labor market conditions, although hiring plans were limited in several Districts.

They're very smart people. But you've got to be able to communicate. That's how you become successful in all walks of life. The life experiences are this [mimics a computer controller], technology, video games, and all this other stuff that's a bit out of touch with reality. Not all of them, but there's a good chunk. You've got to be able to walk out and meet the next person with a completely different personality and be able to move forward.

A ski resort in Minnesota reported that lift ticket sales and lodging were well ahead of last year, although not close to historical records.

He crunched the numbers on Africa Oil and liked what he saw. He pitched the stock as an option for the Ospraie portfolio but got rebuffed. A good portion of that seed money, he says, came about when, in 2012, he took a bet on a company called Africa Oil Corporation. Through a slight chuckle, Guindo ticks off the reasons his boss rejected it: "Small oil and gas company, sub-billion-dollar market cap. I was eight or nine months in. A fellow analyst had put him on to the stock. Having worked on several billion-dollar deals while with Barclays, Guindo already had an affinity for the oil and gas area.

The Garden City Telegram first reported on the statement Monday and posted a video of it to YouTube. Alford apologized later that day, saying: "I was wrong, I regret my comments, and I sincerely apologize to anyone whom I have hurt.

"It used to be a used-car lot," Newell says. "I'm very impatient," says Guindo, "and I try to use it to my advantage. If I believe in something and I have done all of my work and my due diligence, then there should be no reason I shouldn't take that bet in a big way. After handshakes, Newell took Guindo and his traveling partner, Rob Mentnech, a development officer from Wyndham Hotels, to see a 2. Within an hour, he had agreed to buy the plot.

So I think we have to wait and see how this plays out. Everybody thinks Dodd-Frank is in full swing, so people want to dismantle something that's not even 100% enacted today. We are going to have to see what happens. The Volcker Rule is something that needs to be looked at. But when they have taxpayers backing up their deposits, and they're proprietary trading, there's some issues there. But the pendulum definitely swung a little too far against the dealers, in my opinion. They need to be able to proprietary trade.

Cleveland and San Francisco noted an increase in prices for petroleum- based products such as gasoline, fertilizer and certain plastics, and contacts in the Chicago, Minneapolis, and Dallas Districts commented on increased transportation and fuel costs. Retail grocers in the San Francisco District reported relatively stable prices overall, but weather-related factors boosted fresh produce prices. Retail prices were steady or slightly rising in most Districts, although Richmond noted some slowing since the last report. Plans to increase selling prices were limited among most District contacts.

Consider, for instance, his gesture at Carrollton's first Oil Baron's Ball in 2013, which was held to raise money for the the Carroll County Arts Center. But for Shaw, the windfall has also given him a chance to invest in Carroll County and his neighbors, in small ways and large. The gala drew 200 guests, with some of the men in ten-gallon hats and cowboy boots and many of the women in gowns seemingly off the set of Dallas
. During the event's auction, Shaw bid $5,000 on a necklace for his wife — even though she told him she didn't want it. "The money goes to the arts center," he said over her protests.

"We need to get rid of him.

Affidavits also accuse the prosecutor in the case, Terra Morehead, of intimidating witnesses who told her McIntyre was not the killer, and then not informing the defense about those statements. Dexter Burdette, had a romantic relationship with Morehead before the trial that neither disclosed at the time. And the presiding judge, Wyandotte County District Judge J.

It's a different world in which people have to manage their risk more. Today it's different, whether it's the political landscape in the US or geopolitical events around the world. And we are a very cost-effective way for people to manage their risk. For us that bodes well because we're in the risk-management business. So they are constantly looking at our markets, using our markets on a more frequent basis, versus maybe 10 years ago when you'd put risk on for like six months and feel very comfortable.

When you talk about technology, everyone is now relying on technology to tell them what to do. Let me go back a second. I want the innovation to come from here [points at head]. One of the things I'm trying to focus on with my group is, when you talk about innovation, I don't want to go and Google something and say I innovated.

According to the Philadelphia District, most of their financial industry contacts reported continued improvements in their customers' overall credit quality and in their own loan portfolios. Contacts reported little change in their own lending standards. Credit quality generally remained good, with overall reductions in loan delinquencies.

Geologists believe the sand and water injected underground during fracking may have increased pressure to microfault areas. The flurry of seismic activity recently prompted a state agency to link it to fracturing. As a result, drillers near known faults now face more stringent permit regulations.

Burdette is still on the bench. Golubski, Morehead and Burdette have never been disciplined over those issues. Morehead is now a federal prosecutor. All three either declined or did not respond to requests for comment. Golubski retired from law enforcement last year.Besides planting corn and soybeans, he has had 50 to 100 dairy cows producing much of his income. He's owned farmland north of Carrollton since 1978. "If we had another one like that, there would be nobody milking cows in the United Stated today. But in 2009, milk prices across the nation fell. "The consensus was that anyone who milked cows lost between $500 to $1,000 per cow. We milked 100 cows and we lost $50,000," says Kiko, 65, who owns about 300 acres. It worried him that he would have to sell his farm rather than pass it down to his son. Such a possibility caught Roger Kiko by surprise. " The downturn came as Kiko started thinking about retiring. That spooked everybody.

He has excoriated this year's state tax increase, promised to cut government and declared that just because lawmakers appropriate tax dollars, a governor does not have to spend them. In his campaign, Kobach remains an abortion opponent and gun-rights advocate.

He joked he wasn't going to let me hurt "my Terry. Upon visiting the CME Group office in New York on January 11 to speak with Duffy, chairman and CEO at the $40 billion exchange group, I had a security guard scope me out.

Bryan Shaw has one of them. " He will say, "I am an opportunist. He grew up around Carrollton, wrestled for the high school, and for years has owned several different local companies, including a publisher of Yellow Page directories. He made a nice profit when he sold that business in 2005. He also owns 1,400 acres, much of which he leased to the oil drillers for $2,500 an acre. If they did, they're lying. Because if you actually would have known, you would have been out buying everything under the sun. But at the beginning of the oil play I had no idea. He won't say how much he has cleared, just that he has been "very fortunate.

And Kobach's critics worry about independent and third-party candidates improving his chances of winning in November with less than a majority. Because Kansas has no runoffs, a Republican could win the nomination in a crowded primary with only a dedicated base of supporters.

Sounds like it will be pumping crude from sunrise to sundown. Guindo saw a different way to make money on the oil boom, and Drill Capital — his nascent asset management firm — is his vehicle. And Carrollton, Ohio, the county seat of rural Carroll County, is his first stop. Drill Capital is the name of his company. Not so, or at least not right now.

The crime is no different than any other place around the world. Duffy:
Chicago, it's a fabulous place. There are a lot of beautiful areas in Chicago. Chicago gets a lot of notoriety about the crime. Unfortunately, we have it, but it's like anything else, it's concentrated in certain areas. It's not rampant in the city.

But under the House rules, if a member or members files a formal complaint, Ryckman must appoint an investigating committee to make recommendations on whether a member should be censured or removed. However, no lawmaker has talked publicly so far of filing a complaint against Alford.

His early campaign for governor has sounded themes similar to those President Donald Trump emphasized last year on the campaign trail. Kobach is advising the White House and is serving as vice chairman of a presidential commission on election fraud, boosting his national profile as an advocate of tough voter ID and immigration policies.

Cossins was part of a group of about a dozen young counter-protesters on the opposite side of the street, holding a pro-Trump banner. He likes Kobach's advocacy of tough policies against illegal immigration. Cossins wore the red "Make America Great Again" cap associated with the elder Trump's presidential campaign.

"He is very clear on who he is and what his identity is. "He understands his market, and he courts his market," said state Rep. Stephanie Clayton, a moderate Overland Park Republican who dislikes Kobach.

Hours before Trump was scheduled to appear Friday night at the University of Illinois at Chicago, the atmosphere inside a campus arena was crackling as protesters and supporters shouted back and forth, arms raised and yelling in each other's faces.

Sam Brownback's experiment in cutting income taxes had ended in failure, opening the door to a more moderate agenda. But now an even more aggressively conservative figure could win next year's race for governor. A year ago, many voters concluded that Republican Gov.
