TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has endorsed Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts as he battles an aggressive GOP primary challenge from tea party candidate Milton Wolf.

Huckabee announced his endorsement Thursday. He described Roberts as a conservative warrior and said he's fought tirelessly for lower taxes and federal government spending.

All the more reason to vote for Milton Wolf. I don’t even know a thing about Milton, but knowing this progressive RINO is endorsing his opponent, tells me all I need to know.

The weakness of conservative politics is that many good conservatives fall for fake conservative hucksters.

Oh, you mean not just the excerpt check-off? You mean, actually reduce what I post?

What Hucksters progressivism shows us is the fallacy of being a "social ONLY conservative." Many "social only cons love Huckabee, because on social issues he is conservative - so they blindly end up supporting a guy who is in many ways a progressive and a RINO as you state.

Some on FR get touchy and defensive when I talk about the dangers of social ONLY conservatism - and yet, Huckabee's existence as a player makes my case for me, in spades.

And I’m sure that throughout Kansas, millions of voters were unsure of who to vote for, waiting for Huckabee’s endorsement. </sarcasm>

He described Roberts as a conservative warrior and said he's fought tirelessly for lower taxes and federal government spending.

Judging by the results, it's time to put a new pugilist into the ring.

Huckabee is a tool (of the establishment RINOs). They trot him out whenever they need him to flip Christian focused voters away from conservative candidates.

Does the word "lower", that is tied to "taxes", also apply to "federal government spending"?

For a GOPe, I'd presume it does not, and thus the sentence touts bringing home the federal dollars.

"he's fought tirelessly for lower taxes and federal government spending."

Really? That's difficult to demonstrate.

Funny thing is I was at a noon BBQ in Overland Park with Sen Roberts, Sen Moran and Congressman Yoder. Seems that most of the elected Republican’s in KS both State and Federal support the re-election of Senator Roberts.

Saw Campaign Carl Cammeron from Fox news there covering the event.

Would you really vote for an inexperienced Member of the Obama family for your Senator?

Roberts defeats Wolf. Cotton you lose and Kansas wins.

“Roberts defeats Wolf. Cotton you lose and Kansas wins.”

Yes, Roberts won, with more of the republican electorate voting against him than for him.

And should he be successful in November, the people of Kansas will have a 78 year old senator, likely in his final term, that can do whatever he wants. Congratulations!
