WASHINGTON

Former Kansas Republican Sen. Nancy Kassebaum endorsed Democrat Barbara Bollier Thursday for the Senate seat that she held for 18 years.

Kassebaum was the first woman elected to a full term in the U.S. Senate whose husband had not previously served in Congress.

Known for her moderate outlook, Kassebaum served from late 1978 to 1997 when she was succeeded by fellow Republican Pat Roberts, who Bollier is running to replace.

Kassebaum pointed to Bollierís approach to the COVID-19 pandemic, support for public education and her opposition to President Donald Trumpís tariffs as reasons she was backing the Democrat.

1. Great, now lets get Bob Dole on board, I'm sure he doesn't like being called a loser or sucker.
