Records show: Pat Roberts has spent less than 100 days in Kansas in last two years

During summer recesses, when Roberts and other senators received more than a month off to reconnect with constituents in their home states, the Kansas senator used official funds to spend 11 days in Kansas in 2011 and 10 days the following year.

By contrast, the state’s other senator, Republican Jerry Moran, spent official funds to log roughly 475 days in Kansas — nearly five times as many as Roberts — between July 2011 and August 2013, according to Senate records.

A Public Policy Polling survey in February showed Roberts with a significant lead over Wolf at 49% to 23%. But that poll also found Robert’s job approval rating in Kansas was a meager 29%.
