Roberts Accumulating Big Bankroll

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas Senator Pat Roberts seems as safe as any American politician, but he's not acting like it.

Roberts is running for re-election next year. He worries publicly about advocacy groups coming after him with millions of dollars in television advertising. He's already raised more than $2.3 million dollars for his
campaign.

This seems out of place for a Republican in a GOP state, where no Democrat is talking about challenging him. He also has a history of winning big.

Republican pollsters and consultants don't think Roberts is vulnerable but they don't fault him for getting a jump on his campaign. They say the unpopular war in Iraq could make 2008 another bad year for Republicans, and Roberts is wise to prepare.
