Veteran Sen. Roberts wins Kansas GOP Primary

TOPEKA, Kan.  -  U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts has defeated tea party-backed challenger Milton Wolf in Kansas' Republican primary.
Two lesser-known candidates trailed Roberts and Wolf in the race for the GOP nomination in the conservative state.
Roberts is expected to win his fourth, six-year term and extend a career in politics that dates back to the late 1960s, when he was a congressional aide.
Wolf, a Leawood radiologist who was making his first run for public office, called Roberts an out-of-touch career politician.
But Roberts had a far better-funded campaign and attacked Wolf over questionable postings of graphic X-ray images on a personal Facebook page in 2010.

Don't fix it, if it's not broken.
The last thing we need is a wishy washy politician from Kansas to represent us. The Tea party is getting too hyped up and it's starting to look like the political correctness syndrome happening again except it's on the other side of the fence now. Wolfs accusations were weak and typical, Not even news or creative, He might as well been preaching hope and change... Plus the fact of him playing with social media and his profession tells me he isn't serious about it. We don't need a joker in office.. We already have one of those !

Vote out the encumbents.
Till the American people vote out the career politicians they will never have to live with the laws they pass. So when the general elections are here vote out the ones that have had their chance. And wise up to the fact that they are all in the same goodold boys club. The Dems. and the G.O.P. are just like pro wrestlers. The only time they fight is when they are in front of a camera. WISE UP AMERICA
