Milton Wolf accuses Pat Roberts of severing ties with Kansas ^ | 7/8/14 | Seth McLaughlin

Milton Wolf started running a radio commercial Tuesday that dings Sen. Pat Roberts for spending more of his time out of the state, as part of his ongoing effort to paint the veteran lawmakers as out of touch with Kansas and desperate to reconnect with voters ahead of the state’s primary.

The ad, which the campaign said will run statewide, highlights a recent radio appearance in which Mr. Roberts said, “Every time I get an opponent, Every time I get a chance I’m home.”

“That is Sen. Pat Roberts, he doesn’t live in Kansas anymore,” the narrator says in the spot. “Pat Roberts lives in Virginia, right by Washington, where Roberts has been for 47 years.”

Mr. Roberts is running for re-election in the Aug. 5 GOP primary and has come under fire from Mr. Wolf and his allies for not spending much time in the state ever since the New York Times reported in February that the three-term Republican Senator has been hard to find at the residence that he put down for voter registration.

“Truth is, Pat Roberts left us a long time ago, and now we need to bring him home … wherever that is. Because nobody should spend 47 years in Washington,” the narrator says.

Mr. Wolf, a radiologist, has the endorsements of some national tea party groups, including Tea Party Express and the Madison Project.

Too many conservatives in Kansas are completely disengaged from politics. They have turned it all off and so will likely vote for the name that they know, not for the newcomer who is offering a change from business as usual.
