Roberts is the chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee and touted Marshall’s service on its House counterpart. He also said Marshall’s experience as a doctor will be helpful during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Marshall is an obstetrician who represents the same sprawling western and central Kansas district that Roberts did before being elected to the Senate in 1996. 

Marshall won the House seat in 2016.
