American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp is preparing to run for Senate in Kansas in 2020, two sources close to the prominent conservative revealed.

Besides his work in lobbying and consulting, Schlapp is also a Fox News political contributor.

Per The Daily Caller:
 

Schlapp will likely run for Republican Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts’s seat. Roberts announced his retirement at a press conference in Kansas on Friday afternoon. Roberts, 84, made the announcement at about 12 p.m. ET in his home state, stating he will not seek reelection in 2020.

This comes after Roberts, who served in the Senate since 1997, told reporters in December he would make a decision on his future plans in the Senate.

“I am announcing that I will serve the remainder of this term. However, I will not be a candidate in 2020 for a fifth Senate term,” Roberts said.


Republicans shouldn't fall into complacency as Democrats can perform well at the statewide level in Kansas.
