We’re expecting Rep. Roger Marshall to secure the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate. 

Now completing his second term in Congress, Marshall has voted in lockstep with President Trump’s agenda and should be able to expect his blessing for the Senate race — though that has yet to materialize.

As a physician, Marshall makes a point of speaking about healthcare. And while we have no doubt he’s a dedicated practitioner, his vision for the U.S. system is lackluster.
