Statement on Sen. Pat Roberts’ Retirement
KDP Executive Director Ethan Corson released the following statement on Sen. Pat Roberts’ retirement announcement:
Topeka, KS – While we had disagreements with him on many substantive issues, we thank Sen. Pat Roberts for years of dedicated service to the state of Kansas and wish him well in his future retirement. Sen. Roberts served Kansas and his country as a captain in the Marine Corps, a member of the U.S. Congress, and as a U.S. Senator. As the November 2018 elections showed, Kansas Democrats are well-positioned to win what will be an open U.S. Senate seat in 2020.
