Roger Wayne Marshall (born August 9, 1960, age 63) is a obstetrician and conservative Republican currently serving as the junior U.S. senator from Kansas, elected in 2020 to succeed RINO Pat Roberts.[2] He previously was the representative from the state's 1st congressional district.

Despite expected by some conservatives to be an establishment Republican in the likes of former representative Kevin Yoder, Marshall is considerably pro-Trump, having voted to challenge the "official results" of the 2020 U.S. presidential election following massive election fraud.[3]

Marshall is a member of the Republican Main Street Partnership.
