Former Sen. Bob Dole is using his new Twitter account to take a swipe at a Republican congressman who's facing a primary challenge in his home state of Kansas.

Dole started tweeting Monday. The 92-year-old World War II veteran's first message was: "I'm proof that it's never too late to join Twitter."

A few hours later, Dole used his verified account to weigh in on the closely contested race for the Republican nomination in Kansas' 1st District. Dole criticized Rep. Tim Huelskamp for what he called "misleading attacks" on his challenger in the Aug. 2 primary, obstetrician-gynecologist Dr. Roger Marshall.

"I would suggest the current congressman focus on the issues rather than misleading attacks on his primary opponent," Dole wrote.

Dole represented the 1st District before moving to the Senate in 1968. He won the Republican presidential nomination in 1996 but lost to Bill Clinton.
