RandPAC, the leadership PAC of GOP Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, is making a six-figure ad buy to boost incumbent Sen. Pat Roberts in Kansas, who is trying to avoid being drummed out of office by independent candidate Greg Orman.

“When the Senate voted to keep sending billions to countries that hate us, Pat Roberts said no,” a narrator says in the 30-second spot in reference to votes on aid for Egypt, Pakistan and Libya.

“Pat Roberts was one of a few true conservative senators who stood with Rand Paul and said stop sending taxpayers’ money to countries where radicals storm our embassies, burn our flag and kill our diplomats,” the ad continues. “Pat Roberts — fighting for our American home, by bringing our tax dollars home.”

The PAC said the ad will be on broadcast, cable and online, and is scheduled to run from Tuesday through Election Day.

The PAC for Mr. Paul, a likely 2016 GOP presidential contender, also plans to air ads in other states with competitive U.S. Senate races — and a few with early presidential nominating contests — like Kentucky, New Hampshire, Iowa and North Carolina.

Mr. Paul has also appeared in Chamber of Commerce ads in both Alaska and North Carolina and has barnstormed more than 30 states this cycle on behalf of candidates as he lays the groundwork for a possible 2016 run.
