Moran has no doubt that Roberts will win primary

Speaking as both a fellow Kansas senator and chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Sen. Jerry Moran (in photo) told the Washington Examiner this week that he has "no doubt Sen. (Pat) Roberts will be the Republican nominee come August" and suggested Roberts' voting residency isn't a significant issue in his race against tea party challenger Milton Wolf. "I don't think there's Kansans that have the sense that Sen. Roberts isn't a Kansan or has lost touch with our state," Moran said. In the GOP primary, Moran said, "It's a matter of Pat being Pat – that he continues his efforts in visiting with Kansans, telling his story."
