Roberts Steps Down as Ranking Ag Committee Member
Mississippi Republican Senator Thad Cochran, based on seniority, will replace Roberts pending confirmation.
Roberts said in a statement, “No matter whether I hold the gavel, or whether I am the ranking member or whether I am a senior member, agriculture has always been a top priority of my efforts in public service. Nothing will change that. My message to Kansas farmers and ranchers is that I will continue to be your voice and your champion at every turn.”
