Roberts not conservative enough for SCF

robertsmugDespite all his efforts to shore up conservative support, Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., is still being targeted by a political action committee linked to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. The Senate Conservatives Fund announced Tuesday that it is endorsing tea party activist Milton Wolf over Roberts in the GOP primary next year, saying that Wolf gives Kansas Republicans “a chance to send someone new to Washington who will shake things up and bring about real change.” The odds of Wolf winning are remote, but SCF likely doesn’t care. It uses its endorsements and campaign spending to intimidate GOP incumbents to toe the tea-party line.
