Early Friday morning, news broke that Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) will retire when his term is up in 2020.

“BREAKING: Senator Roberts will serve remainder of term and will not seek re-election in 2020,” Roberts said on Twitter.

According to a breaking report in Washington ExaminerMatt Schlapp, a Kansas native and ally to President Donald J. Trump is considering a bid to take Roberts’ place. Schlapp is a lobbyist and the chairman of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). His wife Mercedes works for the Trump administration.

“Schlapp, who spent five years as the chief of staff to a Kansas congressman, worked in the office of political affairs for former President George W. Bush,” the Examiner piece said. “But he has been a strong supporter of President Trump, maintaining close ties to the White House, both personally and through his wife, a Republican operative.”

Roberts has been a member of the U.S. Senate since 1997, and serves alongside Sen. Jerry Moran, also a Republican. He serves as the Chairman for the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry, and serves on the Senate Committee on Finance, the Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, the Select Committee on Ethics and the Committee on Rules & Administrations.

He has sponsored six bills that have become law, including two to rename post offices.
