Topeka, KS — Kansas Black Republican Council (KBRC) and their local councils have voted to endorse U.S. Senator Pat Roberts for U.S. Senate in 2014.

Treatha Brown-Foster, Chairman Emeritus of KBRC, stated that, “Senator Roberts has always supported their efforts to educate African Americans of their God given right to bear arms under the 2 Amendment of the U. S. Constitution.”

Chairman of KBRC, Eliehue Brunson followed saying that, “the two recent Supreme Court Rulings (District of Columbia v Heller 2008 and McDonald v Chicago 2010) is liberating for all Kansans, especially African Americans, who for the first time have the opportunity to defend their property, and their families without constitutional and legislative impediments.”

Ms. Brown-Foster stated that, “Senator Roberts has proven that he is the best person to represent Kansas and this country, and it is an honor for KBRC to endorse this U.S. Marine for the U.S. Senate.”

Thanking the Kansas Black Republican Council for their endorsement Senator Roberts said, “The endorsement of the Kansas Black Republican Council means a great deal and we appreciate their support.  The momentum for Team Roberts is growing every day, and the KBRC’s support will be essential as we work together to ensure a Republican Clean Sweep in 2014.
