“Washington changes you.”
That’s the belief of Dr. Milton Wolf, a Kansas City radiologist who is challenging longtime U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan.
The 43-year-old Lyons native announced his campaign in October and proudly considers himself “very conservative.”
He was the guest speaker at Tuesday night’s monthly meeting of the Big First Tea Party in Hays.
Wolf is a second cousin to President Barack Obama and has never run for public office. It’s his vehement opposition to ObamaCare that led Wolf to enter the political arena. He also believes Roberts is “not a true conservative” and considers Roberts’ 27 years in Washington “too long.”
The Republican Party itself is “not doing well,” contends Wolf, and “needs to be saved from itself.”
If elected, Wolf pledged he would serve “no more than two terms.”
The crowd of about 50 people applauded each of his position statements which “re-embrace the Constitution and the American idea individual liberty, limited government and free-market values.”
More information about Wolf is available on his website.
