AG Derek Schmidt statement on Senator Pat Roberts retirement announcement

Release Date: Jan 04, 2019

TOPEKA − (January 4, 2019) − Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt issued the following statement on today’s announcement by Senator Pat Roberts that he will not seek a fifth term in the U.S. Senate:

“Pat Roberts has long been a solid cornerpost in the sometimes-unfenced chaos that can be Washington, D.C. From his unparalleled leadership for Kansas agriculture to his unwavering support for the U.S. military and America's ever-evolving national security requirements, Pat always has led with the needs of Kansas foremost on his mind. I am personally saddened to know he plans to exit the stage. In this strident political era, Pat Roberts’ often humorous and frequently tempered conservative voice will be sorely missed. Thanks for your lifetime of public service, Pat.”
