TOPEKA A national Republican group has contributed $45,400 to Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts in his GOP primary race against tea party challenger Milton Wolf, a boost for the incumbents sizeable and consistent lead in fundraising.
Recent finance reports filed by the campaigns show that Roberts has raised more than $200,000 so far this month. But Wolf, a Leawood radiologist making his first run for public office, raised more than $120,000 in contributions this month and also loaned his campaign an additional $20,000.
Roberts is seeking this fourth, six-year term and has enjoyed a significant fundraising advantage ahead of the Aug. 5 primary, raising about $3.4 million since the beginning of last year. Wolf, who formally entered the race in October, also saw his total contributions top $1 million this month.

Nobody in this forum will be surprised at this news.
Just RINOs hastening their own extinction.
Have they called Wolf’s supporters racists yet?
Personally, I no longer believe that "a margin more" is sufficient to save us. The only way to save this nation now is to put conservatives in political offices and enact an agenda based on free markets, limited government and the rule of law. As long as we have a Republican party that actively opposes those ends (and we do, obviously), then I believe our only (slim) hope is drastic action.
As long as the Republican Party believes it can continue to survive by being Democrat-lite, it will never change direction.
Only when the party understands that it must change or die can we hope to turn this country around. Our too-long-serving entrenched establishment politicians can still enjoy their comfy lifestyles, their wealth, power and prestige as members of a minority party. So why should they bother to change direction?
Surely a John Boehner (or an Eric Cantor -- had he not been defeated -- or a Mitch McConnell) would be just as happy to be minority leaders if the election cycle didn't go their way. Yes, they would prefer to be majority leaders, but what good would it be to them if a conservative Republican Party won the majority and then threw them out of their cushy positions and all those perks, replacing them with real conservatives?
Ask yourself -- which do you think Mitch McConnell would prefer -- a majority Republican party in which he was stripped of his position by a conservative majority, or a minority Republican party in which he could remain Senate minority leader because the majority of Republican senators were RINOs?
You may argue that we have no time to wait for the Republicans to realize that their only choice is to change or die as a viable party. But if we don't have time for that, then what makes you think we have time to wait for the RINOs and the GOP-e to pursue a "moderately marginal" course of action designed only to maintain their personal fiefdoms at the expense of a free America operating under the rule of Constitutional law?
The GOP had majority power in the House and Senate, and occupied the White House, 10 years ago. What did all that power do to move the agenda of liberty forward? Answer: nothing.
A GOP that cannot even sell liberty, limited governments and free markets to the American people is worse than useless. It is a party of tyranny enablers, and I will have none of it.
Unbelievably, today we are facing once again the stark choice between liberty and death.
Once again, these are the times that try men's souls. Conservatives need to be waging aggressive war against the totalitarian leftist tyrants on all fronts -- in the branches of government at the federal and state level, in academia, in the media, through public demonstrations, and in the voting booth.
You have apparently made your choice about the best way to proceed from this point on. But I respectfully disagree with that choice. I am done enabling.
If we really are to lose the greatest country in the history of the world, then let's at least be fighting for it when it goes down.
And who knows, maybe -- just maybe, if we show sufficient resolve and conviction -- divine Providence will once again provide the support that gave our founders their unlikely victory in 1776, and grant us once again the "new birth of freedom" that Lincoln called for a century later.
I’m looking forward to not voting for a single National Republican in November. Anyone who endorse Roberts, even in the general, will not get my vote.
The Republican party is in its death throes!
Why does AN INCUMBANT need a ‘boost’?
Take him out, guys!!
GET ALL YOUR FRIENDS TO VOTE- PRIMARY VOTES ARE 100 TIMES MORE IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW
The GOP fights its own base with far more gusto than it ever opposed the democrats. *&^ ‘em.
Roberts is going to win the primary. And, once he has done that he won’t need that guy’s recliner in Dodge City, because he won’t need to come back to Kansas anymore, assuming that this is his last race.
However, the national Republican establishment needs to get a strong message from the voters that we don’t like it when they try to run roughshod over the primary process. Their job is to ensure that we win general elections, they need to butt out of the primaries and let us decide who should represent conservatives. I recognize that we’ve picked some doozies like Angle and Akin to name only two, but that stuff gets sorted out over the long term. I don’t like Washington telling folks in fly over country who is worthy and tell need to be sent a message.
I will vote for Wolf on Tuesday.
Public service is an honor, not a perogative. 18 years is enough, time to step aside and let someone else have the honor.
I'm not so sure about that.

Ashamed to say my state has been voting McConnell back in office simply because he has to be there a while so he can bring home the bacon. The country is burning down and all they are interested in is having enough bacon to roast over her flames.
