EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) — Tea Party challenger Milton Wolf confronted U.S. Senator Pat Roberts as he campaigned in downtown Emporia.
Their brief meeting Wednesday took place at an intersection as Roberts walked from business to business to talk with merchants. The two are squaring off in Tuesday's Republican primary.
Wolf told Roberts he wanted the senator to keep his promise to debate him. Roberts says he has no plans to debate Wolf.
At their meeting on the street, Roberts told Wolf it was not the time for the discussion and walked away as a small group of journalists and Wolf supporters watched.
A Wolf supporter shouted at Roberts, "If you can't face Milton Wolf, how can you face Obama?"
Roberts spokesman Sean Fitzpatrick called Wolf's move a stunt.
