Senator Roberts to Serve Remainder of Term and Will Not Seek Re-Election in 2020

Joe Denoyer - January 4, 2019 11:34 am

MANHATTAN, KS — After devoting a lifetime to public service, U.S. Senator Pat Roberts today announced he will not seek re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2020 and will retire at the end of this term and the 116th Congress. For audio and video go here: https://bit.ly/2ToH4es

Making the announcement in the thriving City of Manhattan, near his alma mater, steps from the National Bio and Agro-defense Facility (NBAF) and flanked by Ft. Riley and the pastures of the Flint Hills, Roberts chose the location for its proximity to the various efforts for which he has worked tirelessly over the course of his career in public service for all Kansans.

“Manhattan is an example of all that I have worked for on behalf of Kansans and the nation,” Roberts said. “It is the tangible realization of hope and progress, prosperity and growth.”

Choosing points of the compass, Roberts reflected upon his ongoing work in agriculture, for the military, for economic development, for life science research, for education, for aviation, for national security and much more for the daily lives and pocketbooks of all Kansans.

Concluding his remarks with his agenda for the remaining two years of his current Senate term, Roberts said, “I will be forever grateful to the people of Kansas for allowing me to represent you – and you can bet I still have a very long ‘to do’ list. The fighting for you is a long way from over. I’ve said it before, ‘Marines always take the Hill!’ You can count on me to march forward and press the battle on behalf of our great state and nation.”
