Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) is facing a primary challenger who argues he’s lost touch with his state — and a new report that he no longer has a full-time home in the Sunflower State won’t help debunk that idea.
According to the New York Times, Roberts doesn’t live in the state and instead stays with two donors, C. Duane and Phyllis Ross, when he comes home to visit.
A Roberts aide said, however, the Senator has owned a home in Dodge City since 1992, though he rents it out, and it’s unclear when he last lived in that house. He was in Kansas on Friday, staying in a hotel, and had plans to come back during recess and stay with the donors that typically house him.
The news is sure to provide fodder for attacks from his Tea Party challenger, radiologist Milton Wolf, who has charged Roberts is “out of touch” with the state.
The donors couldn’t say exactly how many times he’s stayed there in the past year, or when he last visited. He changed his voter registration address to the Ross’s Dodge City home the day before Wolf announced, and he pays $300 a month to stay there occasionally. But Roberts seemed unconcerned about the residency issue in an interview with the Times.
