 he scarcely mentions his many years on the House and Senate agriculture committees and is banking on antipathy toward President Barack Obama, which runs high in western Kansas' endless patchwork of wheat, corn and sorghum fields, as the winning message.
 the dozens of voters in cowboy hats and seed-corn caps who met him at breakfast at a campaign rally in Dodge City on Friday couldn't say enough about the three-term Republican, now ensnared in a surprisingly competitive re-election campaign — and feared he's not saying enough about the best reason they believe he should stay in the Senate.
Stung by suggestions that he had become a creature of Washington, Roberts is on a weekend bus tour through the heart of a House district that spans all of western and north-central Kansas and covers 63 counties.
In 1996, when he was chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, Roberts won support for a key farm bill provision that gave farmers flexibility to diversify their crops based on the market, instead of fixed payments based on acres in production.
He was endorsed by 14 of the state's top agriculture economy groups, including growers, livestock associations and retailers, who circulated a letter thanking Roberts.
 yet, in his standard speech, whether in the bustling suburbs of Kansas City or in the farm country near Great Bend some 300 miles west, Roberts casts the race as a battle for Senate control, not a referendum on his accomplishments.
In an arena usually reserved for rodeos and livestock shows, Democratic Senate candidate Michelle Nunn told a boisterous crowd she was "glad to be home."

To reach her 1.4 million-vote target, she needs about 160,000 more white votes than the 412,000 that Democrat Roy Barnes got for his gubernatorial bid in 2010, the last national midterm election.
Rob Collins, director of the national GOP's Senate campaign arm, said Perdue's name ID is low in some rural pockets because he concentrated on metro Atlanta in the primary, while his runoff rival, Rep.
