    Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) responded to President Obama's plan on Tuesday for closing the military prison at Guantanamo Bay by throwing the proposal in the trash. "This is what I think of the president's plan to send terrorists to the United States," he said in a video posted on Twitter. He then crumpled up the paper and threw it in the trash.

    Forty-seven Senate Republicans are signaling in an open letter to Iran and the White House that a deal over Tehran’s nuclear program will be at risk once President Obama leaves office. “It has come to our attention while observing your nuclear negotiations with our government that you may not fully understand our constitutional system,” the senators wrote in the letter, which was first reported by Bloomberg. “Thus, we are writing to bring to your attention two features of our Constitution — the power to make binding international agreements and the different character of federal offices — which you should seriously...

    Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is among a group of five Republican senators who introduced a bill this week that, if passed, would impose a travel ban preventing those in countries currently afflicted by Ebola from coming to the United States. A release on Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley's official website detailed the legislation. Rubio and Grassley are joined by Sens. Pat Roberts (Kan.), John Thune (S.D.) and Mark Kirk (Ill.). Under the proposed bill, people living in countries experiencing "widespread transmission of Ebola" as noted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would be unable to acquire a visa to...

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | November 6, 2014 | Tony Lee
    After surviving a primary challenge and winning a general election, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) declared that he heard his "marching orders" from Kansas voters to be conservative. "I've heard my marching orders loud and clear," Roberts, a Marine veteran, said during his Tuesday evening victory speech. "I will be bold. I will be conservative. And I will be constructive." Roberts, who has been against amnesty legislation since the 1980s, survived his primary challenge against Milton Wolf because there was no daylight between Roberts and Wolf on illegal immigration....

    The Huffington Post ^ | November 4, 2014 | Paige Lavender
    Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) was projected to defeat Independent candidate Greg Orman, according to CBS and Fox News. The Kansas Senate race heated up in September, when Democrat Chad Taylor withdrew from the race and attempted to remove his name from the ballot. According to the AP, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach declared Taylor didn't fully comply with a state election law in submitting his letter of withdrawal, and the dispute was taken to the state Supreme Court. The court ordered the state to remove Taylor's name from the ballot. A September poll suggested the court's decision might have...

    November 1, 2014 Kansas Republicans Take Strong Lead in Early Voting Ky Sisson 10/30/2014 8:00:00 PM - Ky Sisson It was a sad day last night in Kansas when the Kansas City Royals lost the World Series in Game 7. Today, the GOP in "The Sunflower State" have something to celebrate as early voting results show positive turnout from Republicans.  Of the 153,436 early votes cast so far this election 82,739 or 54% were cast by Republicans. In comparison only 47,468, or 31% were cast by Democrats. The remaining votes were cast by unaffiliated or libertarian voters. The blood red state of...

    Vice President Joe Biden blew Kansas independent Greg Orman's cover in a radio interview today. Orman hasn't stated which party he'll caucus with in the Senate--actively avoiding announcing whether he'll be with Republicans or Democrats--but Biden stated definitively that Orman "will be with us" if he's elected.

    In at least two polling locations, voting machines are changing votes for Pat Roberts to votes for Greg Orman. The machines were located in Overland Park, Kansas. Both changed votes to Orman, but did not change votes from Orman to Roberts. According to a local report, voters who noticed that their votes were changed were allowed to vote again. The Johnson County Election Office confirmed that they were aware of the issue and were looking into the matter. They said "the voter was allowed to vote on another machine" and the broken machine, which they said was calibrated wrong, was...

    WICHITA, Kan. -- It seems all eyes are on Kansas, especially in regard to the hotly contested U.S. Senate race between U.S. Senator Pat Roberts and challenger Greg Orman. In the hours leading into the election, Roberts said this is a potentially historic moment in American political history. A vote for him will assure what's best for the country, he said.

    The Federalist.com ^ | October 31, 2014 | Sean Davis
    Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kans.) is in the fight for his political life. Current polls show him barely trailing his opponent, which would make Kansas look like a golden pickup opportunity for Senate Democrats, right?Not so much. In early September, Democrat Chad Taylor suddenly dropped out of the crowded Kansas Senate, leaving a two-man race between Roberts and Greg Orman, who insists that he’s totally an independent and not a partisan Democrat. Orman even swears that he has no idea who he’ll support for Senate Majority Leader if he wins the election next Tuesday. That’s how independent he is.But if Orman...

    Another week, another poll showing the race between incumbent Republican Pat Roberts and Democrat-turned-Independent Greg Orman is too close to call - within the margin of error. Orman has maintained a small yet consistent lead recently but has only led by more than two points in a single poll. On Friday, Fox News released their latest poll of the Kansas race and found Orman up by one point. Roberts has done much to close what looked to be a sizable gap but the race has been plus or minus a few points throughout October. Fox finds 44% say they're for...
  • Possible Illegal Democratic Campaign Activity In Kansas

    Townhall.com ^ | October 31, 2014 | Kevin Glass
    In the tight race between incumbent Republican Pat Roberts and "independent" candidate Greg Orman in Kansas, the Democrats are implicitly pro-Orman. The two-way race between Orman and Roberts has been close ever since Democrats pressured the official Democratic candidate to drop out of the race. But now, the Kansas Republican Party has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission against the Kansas Democratic Party for illegal "in-kind" contributions to the Orman campaign. Kansas Democrats have hung pro-Orman signs at official Democratic Party offices which, according to the GOP's complaint, is illegal: Parties have traditionally used the volunteer exemption for...
  • K-State football coach Bill Snyder endorses Pat Roberts

    10/30/2014 8:26:59 AM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 13 replies
    Beloved Kansas State University football coach Bill Snyder on Thursday endorsed Sen. Pat Roberts for re-election and is appearing in a new television ad for the three-term Republican incumbent, potentially giving the GOP a boost in a race with national implications. Roberts’ campaign launched the statewide spot just five days before the election, which has Roberts locked in a tough contest with independent candidate Greg Orman, a 45-year-old Olathe businessman and co-founder of a private equity firm. Snyder is highly respected throughout the state and college football and has largely remained aloof from politics....

    The polls this cycle have been cruel to Democrats. A number of surveys have given the president’s party undue hope that they could pull off the impossible on Election Day and retain control of the U.S. Senate. But, like Lucy van Pelt ripping the set football away from a rushing Charlie Brown at the very last minute, Democrats have been robbed of that intoxicating hope just as the buzz was getting good. After abandoning the party’s nominee as determined by the voters, Democrats were thrilled by the prospect that ruby red Kansas might elect a Democrat masquerading as an independent...

    While Sen. Ted Cruz may be a star among tea party faithful and other more socially conservative Republicans, he has been less active on the midterm campaign trail as some candidates fear he could polarize voters, The Hill reports. More welcomed in states with tight midterms contests have been Cruz's conservative brothers in the Senate, Marco Rubio of Florida and Rand Paul of Kentucky, who have been counted on to support election bids across the country, the Hill noted. “It’s almost exactly a year ago to the day when [Cruz] led to the government shutdown," Republican strategist Rich Galen told...

    With less than four weeks until Election Day, the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s independent expenditure arm is shifting resources to increase its investment in six states, including South Dakota and Georgia. The NRSC has moved $1 million to South Dakota, plus another $1.45 million to Georgia. In South Dakota, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee made a $1 million television ad buy this week, on the heels of tightening poll numbers that showed its candidate, Rick Weiland, gaining ground. In Georgia, a new poll suggests a runoff is likely. The NRSC also is upping its investment in four other states: Alaska,...

Pat Roberts Finds No Place Like Home“When we get a Republican majority, I’ll be chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, and we are gonna put the livestock producer first,” Roberts told the crowd from a room behind the then-empty cow pen, where the auctioneer had briefly paused his chant to allow the state’s senior senator to address the crowd. The lone man in a suit jacket in a crowd of denim, plaid, cowboy hats and baseball caps, Roberts...
