Kobach supporter sings of Laura Kelly's death at GOP watch party

TOPEKA, Kan. (KWCH) A supporter at Kris Kobach's watch party on election night is getting attention for a song he sang while trying to entertain the crowd.

Don Erbert changed the words to the chorus of "American Pie" and instead sang about Laura Kelly's death.

"Singing this will be the day that I die. This will be the day that Laura Kelly dies," sang Ebert.

The Capital-Journal says the Kansas Republican Party was not aware of Erbert's remarks and says his song was not approved by the party.

A spokesperson for Kelly's campaign called the incident disappointing.

"This kind of rhetoric is disappointing. As Governor-Elect Kelly mentioned in her acceptance speech, she will work hard to change the tone in Topeka and encourage civil discussion of the issues impacting our families," said Ashley Ali.
