Roberts Endorses Trump at RNC

KSAL StaffJuly 19, 2016

Republican Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas has endorsed Donald Trump in a short speech at the Republican National Convention.

The Hutchinson News reports that that Roberts denounced presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in a five-minute speech Monday on the opening day of the convention in Cleveland. He also lavished praise on vice presidential pick Mike Pence, although he had fewer words to say about Trump himself.

Roberts says Americans don’t have patience for “things just as they are.” Roberts said Clinton and the Democrats have taxed and regulated Americans, and destroyed the health care system and harmed the economy.

Roberts had backed Sen. Marco Rubio during the primaries. Roberts later said he would support the nominee.
