TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) — U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts has drawn an opponent for the Republican primary in Kansas next year.
Dr. Milton Wolf of Leawood announced Tuesday that he intends to challenge Roberts. Wolf is a 42-year-old radiologist who's never sought political office, but he's gained attention in conservative and tea party circles for his vocal criticism of the federal health care overhaul.
The 77-year-old Roberts is seeking his fourth, six-year term in the Senate. He's also a vocal critic of the 2010 federal health care law championed by President Barack Obama, a Democrat.
But Wolf says the nation is threatened by politicians in Washington and that he's trying to reclaim the American dream.
Roberts' executive campaign manager, Leroy Towns, says the senator is respected and liked within the Kansas GOP.
