Jeb Bush campaigns for Roberts in Kansas

The Associated Press

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is the latest Republican heavy-hitter to come to the aid of Sen. Pat Roberts' struggling campaign for re-election.

The potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate was in Wichita on Monday for a fundraising event where he told supporters that Roberts would not let them down if re-elected.

Unlike other potential 2016 presidential contenders, Bush has kept a relatively low public profile for much of the year. But he has stepped up his help for GOP candidates as the Nov. 4 midterm election approaches.

His visit comes just days after former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin campaigned with Roberts.

Roberts once was considered a near lock for re-election but now faces a tough battle from independent businessman Greg Orman after the Democratic candidate withdrew.
