From the right wing Daily Caller:
American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp will be running for Senate in Kansas in 2020, two sources familiar with the matter told The Daily Caller News Foundation on Friday.
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.
Republicans will have to fight to secure the seat, which Roberts held for so long, if they want to keep a majority in the Senate in 2020, and Schlapp thinks he can be that person.
Schlapp’s wife Mercedes Schlapp is currently serving as White House Director of Strategic Communications. Whatever that is.
