Parade organizers in a small Kansas town have decided they will not stop Kris Kobach, the Republican candidate for governor, mounting a replica machine gun on a jeep.

Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state who led Donald Trump’s controversial and discredited voter fraud commission, said that would violate his free-speech rights as a proponent of the right to bear arms.
