Topeka, Kan. – The Roberts for Senate Campaign today released a new television ad titled "Not On My Watch." To view the ad, click below:
"Senator Roberts stopped President Obama from bringing Gitmo terrorists to Kansas in 2009, and now that Obama is considering it again, Pat Roberts will do whatever it takes to stop him," campaign manager Corry Bliss said. “Kansas deserves a Senator who will stand up to President Obama and Harry Reid, but Kansans can’t trust Greg Orman to do that.
“Greg Orman would be nothing but a rubber stamp for the Obama-Reid agenda. Orman is a liberal Democrat who gave money to Obama, voted for Obama, and like Obama, is pro-abortion, pro-amnesty, pro-gun control, against repealing Obamacare, and against the Keystone Pipeline. Greg Orman is a liberal Democrat by word, by deed, and by campaign donation. How could Kansans ever trust Greg Orman represent them?"

The Roberts Campaign released "Not On My Watch" days after Greg Orman’s campaign spokesman mocked Senator Roberts and his efforts to stop President Obama from bringing Gitmo terrorists to Kansas on twitter. Tweeting:
"Natural leaders don’t excel by instilling fear & cowardice in their people. But does the Senate Bedwetter's Caucus? http://www. washingtonmonthly.com/ political-animal-a/2014_10/ whos_the_bigger_ bedwetter052436.php …"
In 2009, Senator Roberts fought and won against President Obama’s attempt to close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp and transfer the terrorists to a military camp in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Here was his statement from 2009:
"I oppose any and all efforts to locate terrorists at Ft. Leavenworth. I have heard from the Ft. Leavenworth community, surrounding areas and Kansans from all corners of the state who are unequivocally opposed to housing these terrorists in Kansas…It will just make it less safe for Americans. Not in my backyard. Not in Kansas. I will shut down the Senate before I let that happen."
