WASHINGTON — Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas announced Friday that he would not seek a fifth term in 2020, ending more than a half-century of service in Washington and setting off what will likely be another fractious Republican primary between the party’s warring establishment and conservative wings.
Standing before a shock of wheat at the Kansas Department of Agriculture’s headquarters in Manhattan, Kan., Mr. Roberts trumpeted the recent passage of the farm bill, recalled a career in Congress that began when he arrived on Capitol Hill as a congressional aide in 1967 and noted that he would leave Washington as the longest-serving lawmaker in state history. And, he noted, he never lost a race.
“I’m damn proud of that undefeated record,” said Mr. Roberts, 82, his voice choking with emotion at times.
But Mr. Roberts was nearly felled in his own primary in 2014, when he struggled to overcome the ascent of the Tea Party right and questions about his lack of a residence in Kansas. Mr. Roberts purchased a home of his own in Topeka in 2016, but he almost certainly would have faced another hard-fought primary had he run again.
He is the second long-serving Republican senator to announce he will not seek another term. Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, like Mr. Roberts a mainstream conservative who faced a difficult primary five years ago, said last month that he would retire.
Mr. Roberts’s departure is sure to set off a scramble for his seat, which he has held since 1997. Even before he made his expected retirement official at the news conference on Friday, senior Republicans in Washington were floating Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state and a former Kansas congressman, as a potential replacement.
But even if Mr. Pompeo had the blessing of the national G.O.P., he still would not have the field to himself. There is a long roster of Kansas Republicans who have been eyeing Mr. Roberts’s seat. Among them are outgoing Gov. Jeff Colyer and outgoing Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the establishment-aligned and hard-right Republicans who faced off last year in the primary for governor. The list of would-be candidates also includes Representative Roger Marshall, former Representative Kevin Yoder and state Attorney General Derek Schmidt.
Most of the potential Republican candidates declined to state their intentions Friday, instead offering praise for Mr. Roberts, though Mr. Kobach said in a text message: “I am considering it.”
Democrats have not won a Senate seat in Kansas since Franklin Roosevelt’s 1932 landslide, but thanks in part to the state’s long-running feud between hard-line and more moderate Republicans they won the governorship last year. And Barry Grissom, a United States attorney under former President Barack Obama, has been considering a Democratic bid.
A former Marine and the son of a former chairman of the Republican National Committee, Mr. Roberts came to the capital in 1967 to work as a congressional staffer and was elected to the House from western Kansas’s sprawling First District in 1980. He was elected to the Senate in 1996 and would become the only member of Congress to head the Agriculture Committees in the House and Senate.
Mr. Roberts and his family lived in suburban Washington for all those years. In a 2014 interview, he joked he had “full access to the recliner” at the Dodge City, Kan., home of some family friends and nearly lost his renomination to a far-right challenger who tapped into anger in the conservative grass roots at Washington Republicans.
But on Friday he made no mention of his near-death primary that year. Instead, he basked in his career just a short distance from his beloved alma mater, Kansas State University, before jokingly offering a potential successor: 95-year-old former Kansas Senator Robert J. Dole.B:
