The Kansas Farm Bureau which represents 40,000 Kansas farmers and ranchers, has endorsed Senator Roberts’ re-election campaign to the U.S. Senate.
“Kansas Farm Bureau is proud to endorse Senator Pat Roberts in his re-election bid,” said Steve Baccus, Ottawa County farmer and president of Kansas Farm Bureau. “We need Senator Roberts’ voice in Washington. He is a leader in agriculture policy and without him representing us in Washington, we would be in a world of hurt. We are proud to have him as our U.S. Senator fighting on behalf of our Kansas farmers and ranchers.”
Roberts was Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee and is currently a senior member of the Senate Agriculture Committee. He recently was a member of the conference committee that renewed the latest Farm Bill in Congress.
Roberts is scheduled to debate opponent Jim Slattery at the Kansas State Fair Saturday. kake.com will stream the debate live at 11 a.m.
