Kansas Senator Pat Roberts officially launched his bid for another U.S. Senate term. Roberts filed his paperwork Friday with the Secretary of State's office to put his name on the ballot.
The 71-year old Republican is seeking his third term. He says he hopes to continue making a positive difference in Washington.
"Together in partnership with Kansans from all of the 105 counties, all backgrounds, all walks of life, I believe that we have succeeded in building a better Kansas," Roberts said.
Roberts is not jumping into the presidential campaign yet, though. Roberts says he won't endorse any Republican candidate until the nominee is selected.
Roberts reported earlier this month that he has more than $2.5 million on hand for his campaign. The Democrat who hopes to unseat him isn't having too bad a start, either - businessman Greg Orman's campaign says he already has about $450,000 cash on hand.
