In 1857 the Lecompton Constitution was proposed for the state of Kansas. It enshrined slavery in the proposed state and protected the rights of slave owners. Robert Walker, President James Buchanan’s appointee as governor opposed it and resigned rather than implement it. It was passed by the Kansas voters and sent to Washington for Congress to approve. Buchanan, a Democrat who had Southern sympathies, endorsed the Lecompton Constitution. Steven Douglas, leader of the Northern Democrats, opposed it. Because of voting fraud in Kansas, it was not approved. Eventually Kansas was admitted as a free state.
