Fast forward a month, and the Trump offspring once again campaigned with a Republican lawmaker, and went hunting: This time, he headed to Kansas to attend a Tuesday fundraiser for Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach's campaign for governor, and then on Wednesday, the pair went pheasant hunting.
Kobach tweeted a photo from their outing, writing, "Showed @DonaldJTrumpJr some Kansas pheasant hunting before he returned to New York City. Great morning in the field! #2A #NRA #hunting."
The presence of Trump Jr. at the fundraising dinner, held Tuesday in a hotel in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park, hammered home the point that Kobach has a close relationship -- closer than other Republicans in the race -- with President Donald Trump.
Kobach serves as vice chairman of a presidential commission on election fraud. His early campaign for governor has echoed many of themes the president espouses.
"I think he's actually given conservatives the ability to actually to feel free to speak up again," Trump Jr. said of Kobach at the event, which raised more than $100,000.
Kobach told the Associated Press of Trump Jr., "I think the fact that he's spending his time in Kansas shows that he views this race as an important enough one to get a true conservative in the office."
