The 2014 United States Senate election in Kansas will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Republican Senator Pat Roberts is running for re-election to a fourth term.

Background[edit]

Pat Roberts was re-elected with 60% of the vote in 2008. He will be 78 years old in 2014, and is listed by Heritage Action as the most conservative Senator up for re-election this cycle, and the fourth most conservative in the Senate.[1] Roberts plans to seek a fourth term and is already raising funds for his campaign.[2] Roberts gained negative press attention after acknowledging that he did not own a home in Kansas, with some comparing the situation to that of former Indiana Senator Richard Lugar, who lost a 2012 Senate primary after a similar residency controversy.[3]
