[lead]US Senate – Kansas[/lead]
The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) has endorsed U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts for re-election in Kansas. “There is just too much at stake not to support Pat Roberts,” TPPCF Chairman Jenny Beth Martin said. “We reached out to our people in Kansas, and they overwhelmingly supported this endorsement. They know this race is too important to sit out.”
After a grueling primary campaign, Roberts found himself in an uphill climb for re-election. Recent polls show he’s closed the gap, with a lot on the line.
“The only way to make President Obama a true lame duck is to take away Harry Reid’s majority and his nuclear option,” Martin said. “If Democrats get a pickup in Kansas for the first time since 1932, that road is a lot tougher. It is time for conservatives in the Sunflower State to answer the call.”
