Overland Park – Independent U.S. Senate candidate and Olathe businessman Greg Orman showed why Republicans, Democrats and independents across Kansas are supporting his practical, problem-solving agenda at the Johnson County Public Policy Senate Forum today, answering questions with substance while Senator Roberts retreated to empty Washington rhetoric, talking points, and platitudes.
Quote from Greg Orman
“We’re sending the worst of both parties to Washington,” Orman said. “Bitter partisans – who care more about pleasing the extremists and the special interests in their own party than solving problems…I will stand up for the best idea regardless of what party it comes from, to restore pragmatism and problem solving.”
Quote from Manager Jim Jonas
“Washington is broken, and we all know it. But Pat Roberts' claim that a 47-year, partisan, Washington insider will break the gridlock is simply ridiculous,” said Orman campaign manager Jim Jonas. “Greg Orman is running as an Independent because he believes that it's not just Harry Reid and President Obama who are responsible for the mess in Washington. It's also Mitch McConnell and Pat Roberts himself. “
If we want to solve problems in our country, then we cannot keep sending bitter partisans to the Senate. At every opportunity today, Pat Roberts reinforced what is wrong with Washington, and showed he remains committed to a broken two-party system. Kansans know, and deserve, better.
Meanwhile, Sen. Roberts continued the tired, partisan attack strategy that has turned off voters across Kansas. Senator Roberts admitted Washington is broken but claims the only solution is more of the same.
Orman’s experience in business and his ability to answer policy questions with honest, pragmatic answers impressed the audience of more than 150 business leaders in the economic hub of Johnson County.
