Tea party targets conservative Sen. Pat Roberts

Pat Roberts has amassed one of the most conservative records in the Senate, so it was a surprise to many analysts this year when a Republican primary challenger vowed to run to the three-term senator’s right.

The Kansas Republican, after all, has received solid reviews from prominent conservative groups — including the American Conservative Union — and usually is not grouped with the likes of Sens. John McCain of Arizona or Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Republicans who have become regular targets of criticism from grass-roots and tea party activists.

But the Madison Project and the Senate Conservatives Fund announced this month that they are backing Milton Wolf, a tea-party-aligned activist and former Washington Times columnist, in his bid to knock off Mr. Roberts, who is seeking his fourth term in November.

The Club for Growth, which also has taken sides in some Republican primaries, is staying on the sidelines for now and says it is watching the race develop.
