TOPEKA, Kan. – The Roberts for Senate campaign today announced the launch of a bus tour through Kansas’ First Congressional District, commonly known as the “Big First.” The tour will begin on Thursday October 23rd.

During the three-day Big First Bus Tour Senator Pat Roberts will make seven stops around the First District visiting with voters and making folks in rural Kansas aware that Greg Orman does not share the values of Western Kansas. 

The Big Firsts knows that a vote for Pat Roberts is a vote for conservative solutions and a Republican Senate Majority, while a vote for Greg Orman is a vote to hand over the future of Kansas and the country to Barack Obama and Harry Reid. 

“I am proud to call the Big First home,” Senator Roberts said. “Farmers, ranchers, and Main Street small businessmen and women make up the heart of rural Kansas, and they know that we can’t afford two more years of Barack Obama and Harry Reid’s failed leadership.  I look forward to visiting my friends in the Big First, and letting folks know they can count on me to stand up to Barack Obama and Harry Reid’s liberal agenda.”

“Greg Orman on the other hand does not share the values of Western Kansas. Orman is pro-abortion, pro-amnesty, and supports Obamacare. Orman hides from voters and the issues because every time he does state his liberal positions, he loses more votes.”
