TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts is launching what he calls a statewide listening tour next week with events in three northeast Kansas communities.
The Republican senator's office says the first town hall meeting will take place Monday morning at Elizabeth's restaurant in Atchison. He also plans town halls at community centers in Troy and Hiawatha in the afternoon.
Roberts has said he plans to have meetings in each of the state's 105 counties.
Roberts is seeking his fourth, six-year term in the Senate in the November general election.
His Democratic opponent is Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor, and Olathe businessman Greg Orman is running as an independent candidate. Wichita manufacturing plant inspector Randall Batson will be on the ballot as a Libertarian candidate.
