National group now targeting Roberts

Those who predicted that national conservative groups would target Kansas after their narrow loss in Mississippi last month were right.

Here comes at least one of them.

Politico reports that Senate Conservatives Action, an arm of the national activist group Senate Conservatives Fund, has bought up hundreds of thousands of dollars in air time in Kansas and intends to sponsor anti-Roberts ads.

Roberts is being challenged by tea partier Milton Wolf and two other candidates who aren’t well-known.

Kansas, with its Aug. 5 primary, now ranks as one of the last targets for conservatives eager to defeat a sitting Republican lawmaker.
