TOPEKA, Kansas — U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts and Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback are hitching their re-election campaigns together in a cross-state tour.
Roberts and Brownback were to set out Wednesday from Topeka on a four-day bus tour that includes stops in at least 19 Kansas cities and towns.
Both of the Republican incumbents are locked in close campaigns. Roberts faces a challenge from independent candidate Greg Orman, a Kansas City area businessman. Brownback is being challenged by Democrat Paul Davis, the Kansas House minority leader.
Election Day is next Tuesday.
