WASHINGTON — One candidate in the battle to win the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate seat in Kansas received an exciting endorsement Monday.

Former Senate Majority leader Bob Dole announced on social media he will endorse First District congressman Roger Marshall.

"I'm proud to endorse Roger Marshall for the U.S. Senate. He's a true friend to me and a true friend to Kansas. Dr. Marshall is hard working, loyal and dedicated to preserving common-sense Kansas values in the Senate. He has my full trust, and I know he will represent Kansas well."

Marshall's GOP rivals include former Secretary of State Kris Kobach, Kansas Senate President Susan Wagle and Dave Lindstrom, a Kansas City-area businessman and ex-Kansas City Chiefs professional football player. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed again last week he has no interest in running for the job that will open as Senator Pat Roberts retires.

Marshall commented on Dole's endorsement, "I’m humbled and proud to have Senator's Dole's endorsement to serve Kansas in the U.S. Senate. Senator Dole’s legacy is one of service and conservative results for our entire country. He’s a role model, a mentor and a dear friend."

SEDGWICK COUNTY—Law enforcement authorities are investigating a Kansas man for alleged child abuse.

Just before 11:30 p.m. 10, police and EMS were dispatched to the 3600 block of West 13th street North in Wichita for a child not breathing, according to Captain Brent Allred. At the scene, they discovered a 9-month-old girl with critical injuries.  EMS transported her to a local hospital where she remains hospitalized in very critical condition, according to Allred.

Investigators learned  the child received injuries while in the care of 25-year-old Breitan Radar at the home. That led to his arrest on requested charges of child abuse, child endangerment, possession of marijuana with intent to sell, cultivation of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held on a $250,000 bond, according to online jail records.

A 6-year-old boy and a 2-year-old boy found at the home were placed in police protective custody.  Radar is the father of 6-year-old and not the father of the victim.

During the investigation officers discovered a marijuana grow operation inside the apartment.   

Radar had called the mother to tell her the baby was not breathing. The mother saw a Sedgwick County Sheriff's Deputy's vehicle, contacted the deputy who followed her to the home.

The case will be presented to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office
