WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp is qualified to seek re-election and has dismissed a complaint filed by Huelskamp’s Republican primary challenger.

The complaint was filed Thursday by Great Bend obstetrician Roger Marshall.

It contends that Huelskamp did not disclose his address when he filed his candidacy paperwork and should not therefore appear on the August ballot. It also alleges the address on his Federal Elections Commission filing does not belong to him.

Huelskamp’s campaign called the complaint frivolous and desperate.

Kobach said Huelskamp is registered as a voter in the Fowler area in southwest Kansas.

The secretary of state also said Marshall missed the June 2 deadline set by Kansas law for filing an objection to Huelskamp’s name appearing on the August ballot.
