Any talk of a potentially competitive primary for Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., ended Thursday when he announced his honorary campaign committee for 2014. Included on the list are the two Republicans deemed most likely challenge Roberts, who will be 78 on Election Day, from the right: Rep. Tim Huelskamp and outspoken Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

"I am proud to endorse Senator Pat Roberts for re-election to the United States Senate," said Huelskamp, who has earned a reputation as a thorn in the side of House GOP leadership. "Pat Roberts embodies Kansas with his determination to fight for our state at every turn. We need Pat's toughness in the Senate to fight Barack Obama's liberal agenda. I fully support my mentor and friend, Pat Roberts, for re-election to the United States Senate."

Also included on Roberts' committee are National Republican Senatorial Committee Chair Jerry Moran -- Roberts' Kansas counterpart in the upper chamber -- as well as Gov. Sam Brownback and the state's three other U.S. Representatives, all Republicans.
