SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Former Republican state senator Jean Schodorf says she will run for Kansas Secretary of State next year as a Democrat.

Schodorf, from Wichita, confirmed her intention to run Tuesday during a meeting of the Saline County Democratic Party. Schodorf will challenge incumbent Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

After serving 12 years in the state Senate as a moderate Republican, she lost a bid for re-election after conservative Republicans targeted her for defeat in 2012. Schodorf switched her party affiliation to Democrat in September 2012.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1flzjQp ) Schodorf said she plans to officially file for office Oct. 11.

Mission Hills businessman Randy Rolston already has filed to run for the Democratic nomination.
