Kansas Senator Touts Agriculture Policy Expertise

KSAL StaffJuly 24, 2014

Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts has the support of major farm groups and is touting his expertise in agriculture policy as he campaigns for re-election in the nation’s leading wheat-producing state.

But Republican primary challenger Milton Wolf’s campaign is accusing the three-term incumbent of waging what it calls “geographical warfare” with a radio ad running in western Kansas.

Roberts has endorsements from the Kansas Farm Bureau and the Kansas Livestock Association. He serves on the Senate Agriculture Committee and is a former House Agriculture Committee chairman.

The tea-party backed Wolf is a Leawood radiologist but grew up on a farm in Rice County.

Roberts’ ad in western Kansas suggests Wolf doesn’t understand agriculture and lives “right next to Missouri.” Wolf said Roberts is trying to divide eastern and western Kansas residents.
