WASHINGTON (KSNW) – Kansas Republican Sen. Pat Roberts is congratulating President-Elect Donald Trump on his campaign victory.

Roberts endorsed Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention. He was a key member of the Agricultural and Rural Advisory Committee for the Donald J. Trump Campaign for President.

Roberts said rural Americans were frustrated with the direction of our nation.

“Conservative, patriotic and rural Americans voting in this election made it clear it is a time for a new voice in the White House, a new leader that listens to them. They have found that in Donald Trump. He has started a movement,” said Roberts. “I am proud to continue to be a champion of rural Americans and will continue to put our needs first. I look forward to working with the Trump Administration to ensure the days of our government forcing a partisan agenda upon our daily lives by executive order are finally over.”

Roberts congratulated Sen. Jerry Moran, Rep. Lynn Jenkins, Rep. Mike Pompeo and Rep. Kevin Yoder on their wins in Kansas.
