Don't know much about him, but he's challenging a RINO, but the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) endorsed Dr. Milton Wolf. Eric Cantor's defeat in Virginia has the Washington establishment concerned that thegrassroots could rise up and defeat them too.Pat Roberts (R-KS) Nobody is more worried about this than U.S. Senator Pat Roberts(R-KS) who has been in Washington now for 47 years and faces a strong conservativechallenger in the August 5th Republican primary."I might be next," a deadly serious Roberts told another senator during a ride onthe Senate subway. "You never know."Pat Roberts knows that if voters in Kansas find out the truth about his record, hewill be the next liberal Republican to lose a primary.* Pat Roberts has voted to raise the debt limit 11 times, to increase taxes on 80%of Americans, and to spend taxpayer dollars on wasteful earmarks like the Bridge theNowhere.* Pat Roberts also gave campaign money to Thad Cochran to help him pay for hisdisgraceful race-baiting campaign in Mississippi, which encouraged Democrats tohijack the Republican primary.* And, of course, Pat Roberts doesn't live in Kansas and only goes there when he hasto. Last week, he said, "Every time I get an opponent, uh, I mean every time I get achance to, I'm home."Thankfully, Republicans can replace him on August 5th with Dr. Milton Wolf (R-KS), atrue conservative who actually lives in Kansas.
And unless I am totally off base this is a relatively safe GOP seat.
I know Wolf was the tea party guy, but Roberts has a HAC rating in the high 90s. He's not a RINO by any means, at least on paper. Granted, I haven't been following him and could easily be proven wrong, but just from looking at his voting record, he's not the worst candidate to be left with. Wolf was competitive with someone who is, or appears to be, conservative.
Can you link that ranking?
I just checked... he's the most conservative member of the Senate... interesting.http://www.heritageactionscorecard.com/members/member/R000307
Something is screwy. Was Heritage in favor of raising the debt as well?http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/list-Republicans-support-debt/2014/02/11/id/552285/
It looks like they don't take his entire career. Yeah, I need to look at this further....
I'd hate to think they "pick and choose", I thought they included the most important votes, because that was a huge one.
