(CNN) – President Barack Obama’s second cousin (once removed) will challenge Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, for his seat in a GOP primary next year.
Republican Milton Wolf, a board-certified radiologist and conservative activist, announced his plans Tuesday night at an event in Overland Park, Kansas. His campaign marks his first attempt to run for public office.
(CNN) – As the Obama administration and Democrats gear up to promote the president's sweeping health care reform as a winning solution in the next election cycle, Republicans are gearing up to prove the opposite.
(CNN) – Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts is taking aim at President Barack Obama for making a recess appointment of Dr. Donald Berwick as the new head of the federal agency overseeing Medicare and Medicaid.
The recess appointment allowed the president to install Berwick while the Senate was on vacation over the July 4 holiday, thereby bypassing what could have been a lengthy confirmation process.
“It is ironic that the President chose Independence Day for this action, avoiding the Senate’s Constitutional check on executive power, to appoint Dr. Berwick,” Roberts said in the weekly Republican radio address.
