TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Tea party candidate Milton Wolf has rejected a conservative Kansas legislator's suggestion to allow a poll to decide which one of them challenges U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts in the Republican primary.

Leawood radiologist Milton Wolf's campaign said Wednesday that state Sen. Dennis Pyle of Hiawatha should listen to conservatives who are backing Wolf.

Several tea party leaders sent Pyle emails urging him to stay out of the race.

Pyle proposed that he and Wolf finance a poll or approach news organizations about a poll of likely voters in the Aug. 5 Republican primary.

Roberts is seeking his fourth, six-year term. Wolf has already filed to run against him for the GOP nomination, and Pyle announced last week that he's considering the race.

The candidate filing deadline is noon Monday.
