Dr. Milton Wolf, a radiologist and distant cousin of Obama, announced last night that he would challenge Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), a three-term senator who has been ranked as one of the country’s most conservative lawmakers. As Roberts’ campaign manager points out, “It will be pretty hard for anyone to get on the conservative side of Pat Roberts.” Wolf is going to give it his best shot.
Wolf started by using his announcement event to lay into Roberts’ record of voting 11 times in the past to raise the debt ceiling. Plus, Wolf argued, Roberts has been around for way too long. “I’m sorry,” he added, but “not even Moses should be in Congress for four decades.”
“We need more senators like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee,” Wolf argued.
