President Trump has tapped Kansas Solicitor General Stephen McAllister to serve as U.S. attorney for Kansas, officials said Friday.

McAllister has been the point man for the state’s defense in the ongoing school finance litigation before the Kansas Supreme Court and is a former dean of the University of Kansas Law School.

McAllister will have to go before the Senate for confirmation, where he’ll enjoy strong support from both of Kansas’ senators, Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran.
