Less than a week before primary day, Kansas Republican Sen. Pat Roberts is still ahead, but he has a real race on his hands against a tea party challenger .... Milton Wolf, a radiologist who had never run for office, is inching closer, despite being wrapped up in a scandal after posting X-rays of deceased patients on Facebook.Time up the viscous counter-insurgency, I'd say.
... “It’s definitely closer than we expected,” said one GOP operative close to the race on Roberts’ side.
Except for Wolf’s scandal, the conditions are favorable for an upset: Tea party groups who fell short in the Mississippi Senate race are turning their attention toward Kansas; ...and although Roberts took his challenger seriously, the establishment didn’t consider Wolf a major threat and didn’t come out on Roberts’ behalf as it did for Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran.
Them RINOs are sneaky. I imagine they have a surprise or two still in store for the Insurgent.
