Tech billionaire Peter Thiel has given $850,000 to a super PAC that's backing Kris Kobach's US Senate run in Kansas, Recode reported Tuesday.

Thiel previously donated money to pro-Kobach groups during his failed 2018 bid for governor, and is closely aligned with his anti-immigration policies, according to Recode.

Thiel has been looking for congressional candidates to put his money behind since abandoning Trump's reelection campaign earlier this month, saying the president faces slim prospects in November.
