Pat Roberts Announces His Retirement

Saturday, January 5, 2019

Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) announced yesterday that he will retire at the end of his term, opening another important U.S. Senate seat for conservatives to fill in 2020.

President Trump won Kansas by 20 points in 2016, and it’s clear that voters want conservative leaders in Washington who will fight for less government and more freedom and opportunity for all Americans.

However, in order to succeed, conservatives will need to unite behind a strong candidate in the Republican primary. Since Kansas does not have a primary run-off, a liberal Republican can win with limited support if multiple conservatives divide a majority of the votes.

The same is true in Tennessee where Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) has also announced his retirement.

We’re looking at prospective candidates in Kansas and Tennessee, and will do everything we can to help the grassroots unite behind true conservatives who can win.

Please help us recruit outstanding candidates by making a contribution to the Senate Conservatives Fund today.

The U.S. Senate needs more principled leaders and with your help we can identify, fund, and elect more next year.

Thank you for being part of our team and for doing so much to fight for conservative leadership in Washington.
