U.S. Senator Roberts addresses a news conference as he discusses his opposition to a vote on START Treaty on Capitol Hill in WashingtonBy Carey Gillam and Kevin Murphy KANSAS CITY Mo. (Reuters) - Veteran Republican Senator Pat Roberts fought off a Kansas primary challenge by a Tea Party-backed doctor who had promised a "family feud" with his distant relative President Barack Obama if elected, results on Wednesday showed. Roberts secured 48 percent of the vote and Milton Wolf 41 percent in the four-candidate field, according to final but unofficial results, the Kansas secretary of state said. In primary battles ahead of November's midterm elections, Roberts' showing marked a victory for an incumbent Republican, a pattern that played out more broadly as voters went to the polls in other U.S. states on Tuesday.
