Tea party and conservative groups have been sustaining challenger Milton Wolf in the final days of his campaign to unseat U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts in the Kansas Republican primary.

Gov. Sam Brownback has filed for re-election, saying that under his watch Kansas has become a lighthouse for the nation.

Brownback and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer filled out the necessary paperwork Thursday morning to ensure that their ticket is on the Aug. 5 Republican primary ballot.

They were joined at the Statehouse event by former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole and Mary Jean Eisenhower, a granddaughter of President Dwight Eisenhower.

Dole and Mary Jean Eisenhower are the honorary leaders of Brownback’s re-election campaign.

Brownback touted cuts to income taxes aimed at creating job growth as an example of his first-term leadership.

Brownback faces a primary challenge from Wichita landscaping business owner Jennifer Winn. Kansas House Minority Leader Paul Davis of Lawrence is the only announced Democratic candidate.
