Kansas voters are flirting with the idea of ousting incumbent Republican Sen. Pat Roberts in favor of an “independent” challenger. There’s only one problem. The “independent” candidate is an Obama donor. Townhall,
“Roberts ran an uninspiring, sluggish primary campaign, in which he was dinged for not owning a home in the state he represents. Though he eventually bested his Republican competitor, Democrats sensed blood in the water.
“They’ve since convinced their own nominee, elected by actual Kansans, to drop out of the race, leaving no official Democrat on the ballot. (The state supreme court ruled that even though the erstwhile candidate exited the race without crossing and dotting the necessary T’s and I’s, they’d allow his voter-disenfranchising maneuver to stand). The man who now stands as Roberts’ only serious opposition is Greg Orman, a born-again “independent.” According to polling, which is still unsettled in the wake of the ballot upheaval, Orman holds a single-digit lead over Roberts. Who is this guy? Put simply, he’s a Democrat, despite his denials. He’s donated thousands to Obama, Hillary Clinton and Harry Reid, but now he’s playing games by declining to state which party he’d caucus with, if elected.”
