TOPEKA, Kan. -- U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts is touting his expertise in agriculture policy as he runs for re-election in the nation's leading wheat-producing state, and tea party challenger Milton Wolf's campaign accused him Thursday of trying to exploit geographical tensions with a new radio ad in western Kansas.
The 60-second spot, which began this week and will run until the Aug. 5 Republican primary, says Wolf doesn't understand agriculture and can't be counted upon to defend federal subsidies for crop insurance. The ad describes Wolf, a Leawood radiologist, as living "right next to Missouri" and says he "just doesn't work for western Kansas."
Roberts is seeking his fourth, six-year term in the Senate, serves on its Agriculture Committee, and has long been active in debates over farm policy. He's a former U.S. House Agriculture Committee chairman, and he and his aides believe he could become the Senate committee's next chairman if the GOP wins a majority.
The Kansas Farm Bureau and Kansas Livestock Association have endorsed the senator, and his backers recently formed Farmers and Ranchers for Roberts.

Keep that subsidy gravy train rolling.
Farm expertise. Sheeeyit. Pat Roberts couldn’t identify a corn cob from a corn dog.
Does he mention anywhere in there that he voted against the latest Farm Bill? I’m sure the folks in western Kansas would love to hear about that.
Agricultural policy? Shovel-ready BS.
DEPOPULATE socialists/rinos from the body politic.
Calls for socialization of farming (more here)...
DEFUND/DISMANTLE the USDA and the rest of the socialist collectives, foreign and domestic.
It’s fun, it’s easy to
live - free - republic
(ballot box bump)
Roberts is part of the problem
All KS people know to do is like the Mississippians, rubber stamp the “friendly incumbent”.
For Roberts, taking care of the large Agri-business operations is Agriculture Policy. Some poor smuck trying to farm on patches of land that he leases because he can’t afford to buy at inflated prices doesn’t get any help from Pat Roberts, that help goes to his big corporate farm competitors.
The ad describes Wolf, a Leawood radiologist, as living “right next to Missouri” and says he “just doesn’t work for western Kansas.”
O really? Well, neither does a U.S. Senator who abandoned his home-state, of Kansas,when his kids were in elementary school, and has been a proud resident of Virginia ever since.
