Politico: Roberts/Orman Debate All About Harry Reid
Kansas debate all about Harry Reid (Politico)
The star of Wednesday afternoon’s debate in Kansas’ critical Senate election wasn’t Republican Sen. Pat Roberts or independent Greg Orman. It was Harry Reid.
The Senate majority leader came up in nearly every answer the two candidates aimed at one another, with each professing more strongly than the other that he thinks Reid’s stewardship of the Senate has been abysmal.
In the debate — held in Overland Park, Kansas, and sponsored by the Johnson County Public Policy Council — Roberts contended that an Orman victory would help Democrats and Reid retain control of the chamber, since Orman is open to aligning with either party.
