After surviving a primary challenge and winning a general election, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) declared that he heard his “marching orders” from Kansas voters to be conservative.
“I’ve heard my marching orders loud and clear,” Roberts, a Marine veteran, said during his Tuesday evening victory speech. “I will be bold. I will be conservative. And I will be constructive.”
Roberts, who has been against amnesty legislation since the 1980s, survived his primary challenge against Milton Wolf because there was no daylight between Roberts and Wolf on illegal immigration.
Roberts hammered Greg Orman, who expressed support for a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants, on amnesty. He also touted his pro-life credentials en route to Tuesday’s victory.
