A distant cousin of President Barack Obama is considering a primary challenge against Republican Kansas Sen. Paul Roberts in 2014.

Milton Wolf, a 42-year-old radiologist, has been testing the waters and recently sent an e-mail to conservative GOP activists asking them to contact him if they want more senators like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, reports Politico.

"If you've ever asked yourself what you can do and you're ready to fight for America . . . email me," wrote Wolf, who says on his Internet blog that he's proud to work with conservatives, tea partiers, and Republicans. "It's time for the patriots to save America from our failed political class."

Wolf's great grandfather, Thomas Creekmore McCurry, is Obama's great-great-grandfather, and Wolf has touted that indirect link to the president in appearances on Fox News and in columns he's written for the Washington Times.

On his blog page, The Wolf Files, the Kansan writes: "I could wax poetic about why I champion personal liberty, a free market, private property rights, accessible information, self reliance, personal charity, and a government more committed to empowering its citizens rather than entrenching itself, but I will just because I love this stuff."

While considering a run for the Senate, Wolf has reportedly criticized Roberts for voting to raise the debt ceiling and to bail out Wall Street, and for supporting earmarks in spending bills.

Roberts, 77, told Politico on Thursday that he was taking any potential challenge seriously.
"I'm in a very strong position," he said. "But I'm not taking anything lightly. Marines don't do that. They take the hill."

Referring directly to Wolf, Roberts added, "I think he's a cousin of some sort to the president, but he's very conservative." The senator also said he has called Wolf "on occasion and congratulated him on some of his Facebook or blogs or whatever."
