Kansas Senate Race: Positive Conservative Solutions vs. 47 years in Washington and More of the Same
redstate.com ^ | 8/4/14 | Milton Wolf

Posted on 08/04/2014 9:00:58 AM PDT by cotton1706

Washington has lost its way — we all know it — and we will not change Washington until we change who we send to Washington. Tomorrow Kansans have an opportunity to do just that.

Too often, Republicans can offer little more than saying what they’re against, rather than what they stand for. This achieves little more than whining. We desperately need Republicans who can offer bold, positive, conservative solutions rather than just complaints. We desperately need new Republican leaders who can communicate why conservatism is not only effective, but also compassionate.

I am challenging Senator Pat Roberts in the Republican primary. After 47 years in Washington, Roberts cannot name any achievements worthy of re-election. Can you? He’s lost his way, voting for Barack Obama’s $600 billion tax hike, 11 debt ceiling increases and even for Kathleen Sebelius to run ObamaCare. Before I challenged him, before his breathtaking election-year conversion, Senator Roberts’ lackluster scorecards at Club For Growth and FreedomWorks were 55 and 54, respectively.

Pat Roberts is hiding from the issues that matter most to Kansans and all Americans. He has refused to debate me even after repeatedly and publicly promising voters he would, but there are serious policy differences between us. I offer positive conservative solutions while Pat Roberts offers more of the same.

TERM LIMITS

I support term limits and will lead by example, pledging to serve only two terms in the U.S. Senate. I will continue to practice medicine in Kansas (part time and as a volunteer) while I serve and practice

full-time when complete. Pat Roberts

It’s hard to get those types of Republicans when half the country is on the take and at least a third of Republicans vote with the Democrats. Obama know demographics is destiny and he’s loading up on illegals that will soon be voting. If we don’t win in Nov. and in 2016 we are done.

I will vote for Milton Wolf tomorrow. The founders did not envision professional politicians. They believed that the best representation came from strong local leaders who were from the community, knew the community, and returned to it after a short period of service in Washington.

My 5th great grandfather served only a single term in Congress, my great great grandfather only two terms. They both came back home and continued their service to their families and their communities. Roberts represents much of what has gone wrong with our political system, especially in the U.S. Senate.

That’s not even an option.

Following a parade yesterday with Roberts & Wolfe in it,
my daughter asked if I was going to vote for Roberts.

I said, “yes, if he wins the primary”.
(Which opened an opportunity to explain the primary system, etc.)

Seeing more of this race than Lamar, is that because it’s closer? I know, I’m all questions today but have been somewhat out of the loop lately due to family issues.

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?

How is Roberts “Democrat Light” ? He’s the most Conservative Senator from Kansas in over 5 decades. You want “Democrat Light” ? Try his RINO predecessor Nancy Kassebaum, or her predecessor, the Socialist Republican James Pearson who voted identical to Ted Kennedy. THOSE are “Democrat Lights.”

I’ve got an actual liberal RINO here in Tennessee that needs being bounced on his ass this week in Lamar!. I’d swap him for Roberts, who votes 20%+ to his right in a heartbeat.

As for Milton Wolf, what is his public record ? What are his contributions to the Conservative cause in Kansas ? In short, what has he done to trust him ? I’ve asked that question dozens of times of his supporters and nobody has an answer. “He is not Roberts” is not an answer. Neither is Zero, neither is Kathleen Gilligan Sebelius. Neither am I, neither are you. He’s a total unknown. That’s not enough to support him. In fact, trusting an unknown over someone with a Conservative record HOPING he might be better is naïve at best, disastrous at worst.

Cotton please do the math for me on the number of year?

Let’s set the record straight. Pat Roberts has been in DC for a total of 33 years as an elected official. Wolf constantly misstates the facts.
Senator (R-KS) since 1997 (17 years) Previous office: Representative (KS 1st District) 1981–1997 (16 years) I have a problem with Milton’wolf’s math. He should try for a local position before running for Senate

They’re counting the prior years when he worked for Sen. Frank Carlson and Congressman Keith Sebelius. Still, the implication they make is that he’s been in the Senate since 1967 instead of 1997. It’s very deceitful.

Roberts also worked for a congressman (Sebelius) from 1969-1981 (when Roberts took his boss’s seat) and for a senator I believe from 1967-1969.

So Wolf is correct. Roberts has been in Washington for 47 years.

The apostolic selection of politicians by politicians and for politicians needs to stop. Voters need to support candidates who will represent them, not just join the incumbents protection society.

Happy to take the bait

The whole point of his residency issue is that he left his native state of Kansas a long, long time ago. He graduated from Kansas State University in 1957 and was commissioned as a Marine Corps officer. After he left the Marine Corps, he moved to Arizona and took a job as a journalist. In 1967, he moved to Washington as a staffer for Keith Sebelius, the long time Republican member of the House for Kansas 1, and the father-in-law of Kathleen Sebelius. He was elected to the Sebelius seat upon Sebelius’ retirement and then elected to the Senate when Kassenbaum-Landon retired.

Not only has he lived in Washington for 47 years, he has been a card carrying member of the Republican establishment for much longer as his father was the Chairman of the Kansas Republican Party and then Chairman of the Republican National Committee until fired by Eisenhower for his involvement in a bribery scheme.

I think that your problem is more likely that this issue is hitting home and Roberts has not done well countering it. The notion that only professional politicians are eligible for the exalted office of Senator is one that I reject out of hand.

Roberts is an establishment and Washington insider to the very depth of his bones.

Nope worked in and out of DC. Try and twist the words it does not work. Wolf is Dead on arrival. Perhaps we can get the X-rays Tuesday evening about 10 PM. You want to come to the Robert’s victory party? Seems that Gov Brownback, Congressman Yoder and Jerry Moran will be attending it. Where is Wolf’s party going to be? He never shows up at mainstream KS GOP functions?

Is Wikipedia incorrect?

“Roberts was a reporter and editor for several Arizona newspapers before joining the staff of Republican Kansas Senator Frank Carlson in 1967. In 1969, he became administrative assistant to Kansas’s 1st District Congressman Keith Sebelius.

After Keith Sebelius announced his retirement, Roberts easily won the Republican primary, which was tantamount to election in the heavily Republican 1st District.”

Wolf is related to obama.

He is also related to Noah, what is your point?

Do you have any relatives that still support Obama? I would be surprised if you didn't.

Ever look into the background of Ronald Reagan's kids with Nancy, they hated his politics and probably Reagan himself.

When you compare evil to less evil sometimes the less evil looks quite good, so the comparison loses any meaning.

Roberts no more represents Kansas than I do.

Now that’s funny. But to the point, you no more know anything about him or his record than I do. Campaign promises aren’t worth squat without the record to support it. In short, talk is cheap. If Wolf had something to point to, he’d have a lot more traction. Instead, he’s just an empty suit campaigning as “I’m not Pat Roberts.”

>> Wolf did not get to pick his relatives, and neither did you. <<

No, but he did get to pick his campaign theme, and he built it around the fact he's related to Obama (as if that somehow qualifies him for a Senate seat)

I have a distance cousin who is a flaming homo, but I don't go around advertising that fact when I put out my resume, or refer to myself as "the flaming homo's conservative cousin". I don't even mention it all.

Wolf does, and makes it the reason to elect him.

Gotta wonder why Wolf LOVES to remind people that he's distantly related to the marxist failure. It seems Miltie and his "cousin" have more in common than we thought.

And the whole point WHY the residency issue has failed to gain track for Wolf is the double standards from his detractors. 90% of the Tea Party people BASHING Roberts for leaving Kansas a long time ago were APPLAUDING Liz Cheney for doing so in Wyoming and then seeking a Senate seat there 30 years later when she lived in Virginia. So I guess it's only bad when Roberts does it.

People aren't buying the selective outrage.
