InfoCharles Patrick Roberts
A fourth generation Kansan, Senator Pat Roberts of Dodge City won election to the U.S. Senate in 1996 following retirement of Senator Nancy Kassebaum (Baker). He served eight terms in the House of Representatives from Kansas' First District.

Born in Topeka April 20, 1936, Senator Roberts is the son of the late Wes Roberts, Chairman of the Republican National Committee under President Dwight Eisenhower. His great-grandfather, J.W. Roberts, founded the Oskaloosa Independent, the state's second oldest newspaper. Following graduation from Kansas State University in 1958, Senator Roberts served in the U.S. Marine Corps for four years, then worked as a reporter and editor for several Arizona newspapers. He joined the staff of Kansas Senator Frank Carlson in 1967. In 1969, Senator Roberts became Administrative Assistant to Kansas First District Congressman Keith Sebelius. Senator Roberts was elected to Congress in 1980, succeeding Sebelius upon his retirement. Senator Roberts and his wife Franki have three children: David, Ashleigh, and Anne-Wesley.
