Two other Kansas rallies – in Pittsburg and in Overland Park – on Paul’s schedule for that day, too.
Well, I think Rand is to be in Pittsburg on Monday, but, it may have changed.
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul will hold three public rallies Oct. 28 in support of Republican incumbents Gov. Sam Brownback and Sen. Pat Roberts, including one in Wichita.
The Wichita event is from noon to 1 p.m. at Jabara Airport’s Hangar One, 3512 N. Webb Road.
The Kentucky senator will follow the Wichita stop with a rally from 3 to 4 p.m. at the Lamplighter Inn, 4020 Parkview Drive in Pittsburg. The third event is scheduled from 5 to 6 p.m. at Overland Park’s Museum at Prairiefire, 5801 W. 135th St.
Paul will also appear at private fundraisers and meetings during his visit to Kansas, according to a news release.
In addition to Paul’s rallies, two other events supporting Brownback and Roberts will be held Oct. 27.
The Mitt Romney rally for Roberts is set for 1:30-2:30 p.m. at Prairiefire shopping district, 5661 W. 135th St. in Overland Park. The Bobby Jindal rally for Brownback is scheduled for 4:30-5:30 p.m. at Steel and Pipe Supply, 401 New Century Parkway in New Century.
Brownback faces gubernatorial hopeful Democrat Paul Davis in the Nov. 4 general election.
Independent [Dim] candidate Greg Orman is challenging Roberts in the senate race.
I don’t know about Lee or Scott as to whether or not they’ve come to Kansas, or will. But, I can tell you Ted Cruz has been here for Roberts. And, so has a plethora of other Repubs, of all stripes. Texas Gov. Perry has been here for both Roberts and Brownback. I’m certain Jindal will offer words of support for Roberts, as well as for Brownback, when he’s here.
Consider this. From Romney to Cruz, from Perry to Jindal, to Paul ….. they’re all showing up for Roberts. What does this tell you?
Roberts is mild manner in nature. He’s not a flame thrower like Cruz. But, he’s every bit as conservative as Cruz. He’s more fiscally conservative than most of them, and is socially conservative, but, socially liberal enough to have Rand Paul move for him.
There’s not a Repub star who hasn’t turned out for him, except maybe the beached whale from New Jersey. Again, this is telling.
Roberts’ demeanor isn’t to throw fire, but, rather, argue with reason and calm demeanor. He does get demonstrative, especially when the government moves outside it’s purview. But, he’s a person they all believe in. He’s rock solid and has been since we sent him to D.C. He’s been there a long time. I don’t know of another single senator who has been as consistent as Roberts who has been there for that length of time.
Ted Cruz was 10 years old when we sent that Marine Captain to D.C. And, yet, Cruz is stumping for Roberts. Rand Paul, who could start his own party if he wished, and doesn’t need Roberts’ support for anything, is coming to Kansas to stump for Roberts, the elder statesman.
Roberts is the one who steadies the ship. He helps the people like Cruz and Paul. He works with them and for them. He’s the guy people like Perry, Romney, and Jindal want to have in the Senate, were they to fulfill their presidential ambitions. Not to be a rubber stamp, but, to be the guy they know.
When a question comes up in the Senate, I never have to look to see where Roberts stands. I already know. Even on the very few points in which I may disagree with him, I already know. He’s steady, he’s rock solid, ….heck, he’s a Marine. He’s unwavering. He’s been a fine representative of the state of Kansas, and a wonderful force for the good of his country. Perry, Cruz, Paul, Romney ….. they all know this. He’s a legend among the stars.
Unfortunately, congress hasn’t done a very good job for the people. This causes an anti-incumbent notion for all the people of the US, which is understandable. And, this is the weakness of Kansas. We are, and will be for decades to come, conservative. But, that doesn’t stop the frustration with congress and the way things are. And, so, from time to time, we throw the baby out with the bath water. This is how we got Sibelius. But, more importantly, this is how the nation was curse with Sibelius.
Kansas, don’t you dare bring us more shame than this!!!!! Don’t you dare send some other leftist to DC to represent Kansas!!!!
I know there are some so-called Repubs in Kansas wanting Roberts to “move on”. They feel it’s their turn and they can’t move up without Roberts out of the way. They are of the ambitious sort and do not have Kansas, nor the US interests at heart. They are some of the folk trying to unseat Roberts in favor of Orman.
Kansas, don’t fall for this!!!! Don’t be played, again!!!! Look at what the last Dim did to Kansas and did to our country!!!!!!!
Roberts personifies what Kansans are. Quiet, unassuming, but, resolved. I spent a considerable amount of time in my youth away from Kansas. I’m not so quiet.
