Milton Wolf confronts Sen. Pat Roberts in person with debate challenge (VIDEO)

July 30, 2014

Underdog tea party challenger Milton Wolf really wants to debate Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). So he asked him directly on Wednesday.

Wolf confronted Roberts during a walking tour, according to the Associated Press. The Emporia Gazette captured video of the exchange.

"You've told Kansans, you've given your word you'd give a debate," Wolf told Roberts. "You've said it multiple times in multiple places. You tell us that you’re tough and tested and trusted."

Roberts wasn't amused.

"This is not the time," he responded. "We have a regularly scheduled event."

Wolf replied: "When would be the time, senator? Because I'll go anywhere you'd like."

Roberts then walked away.

The primary is next Tuesday. Roberts is regarded as the clear frontrunner.
