Topeka - Former Governor of Arkansas, Fox News host and the winner of the 2008 Kansas Presidential Caucuses, Mike Huckabee, today endorsed Senator Pat Roberts in his re-election bid for the U.S. Senate.

“We need conservative warriors like Pat Roberts fighting for us in the U.S. Senate, and I am proud to endorse his candidacy,” Huckabee said. 

“Pat is a pro-life, small government, family values conservative who has fought tirelessly for lower taxes, less spending and stronger border security.  His work to repeal and replace Obamacare and roll back the President’s tidal wave of job stifling regulations is unparalleled. He’s a champion for the Second Amendment and all of our constitutional freedoms, which are under assail. 

“We need more leaders like Senator Roberts in our party. I can think of no one better to serve the people of Kansas in the U.S. Senate. I urge you to get out and vote for Pat Roberts.”

“I am honored and humbled to have Governor Huckabee’s support in this campaign,” said Roberts. “Mike is a patriot, a conservative champion, a man of faith and an amazing public servant whose incredible career and dedication to his principles have never wavered. I am thrilled to have him in my corner as we continue to march toward victory.”
