It was not immediately clear whether Taylor would file his challenge with a court or the Kansas Objections Board, which covers election issues. But Kobach said earlier Thursday that the board, which is under his authority, would not handle any appeal.

Taylor attempted withdrawal from the race was perceived as a maneuver by Democrats to pit the Republican Roberts against independent candidate Greg Orman, who had led Roberts in some polling and was previously a Democrat.
