Alexandria, Va., and Alexandria, Kan., are nothing alike.
One is a suburb of the national’s capital. The other is just a few miles from Leavenworth. But a tea party group based in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., wants to host a Kansas Senate primary debate, and the long-shot challenger has already accepted the invitation.
A group known as the Northern Virginia Tea Party is offering to host a debate between veteran Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., and challenger Milton Wolf. Wolf may be best known to HOH readers as a distant relative of President Barack Obama.
Wolf, a radiologist, has fire for, among other things, posting patient x-ray images on Facebook.
Wolf’s already accepted an invite for a debate somewhere in or around Alexandria, Va., the group’s emailed statement said.
“We will work with both parties to schedule the debate at a convenient time from both campaigns, and we will tape the debate for broadcast back in Kansas, so that the voters who have to make a choice in this election will get to see who they are choosing from,” the group said.
Lead organizer Ron Wilcox told CQ Roll Call that the local organization has had roughly 50 to 125 people in attendance at monthly evening meetings.
