Mike Pompeo Makes Decision on Kansas Senate Campaign

Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State, Trump Administration

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is making it clear that the only political campaign he’s interested in is a bid for the White House. Pompeo has just endorsed Kansas Republican Senator Jerry Moran for re-election, also quashing rumors he was considering challenging the senator.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Years before he joined Former President Donald Trump’s administration, Pompeo, then a Kansas congressman, considered challenging Moran in a Senate primary and took initial steps toward launching a bid before deciding to stand pat.

On Tuesday, through CAVPAC, his political action committee, Pompeo issued a statement supporting Moran.

“Senator Jerry Moran always puts Kansas first, and we need him in the Senate in order to save the American Dream, as we know it, for future generations,” he said. “I’m proud to support Jerry for re-election, and I encourage my fellow Kansans to send him back to the Senate to continue fighting for our country.”

Pompeo in the 2020 election cycle, while secretary of state, eyed a Senate run for the seat being vacated by 24-year GOP Sen. Pat Roberts. Pompeo was a highly sought-after recruit as a means of blocking the GOP nomination from going to immigration hawk Kris Kobach, a former secretary of state who flailed in previous efforts to move up higher in statewide elected office. Pompeo decided to stay in the Trump Cabinet, and Roger Marshall, a four-year Republican congressman, easily won the seat.

Pompeo has hinted at making a run for the White House, especially if Donald Trump decides against launching a third campaign. Do you think Pompeo is gearing up for a presidential campaign?

  1. Mike and DJT get along well and he would be a great choice to defeat any Dem he ran against. Go Mike and get us back to before OBiden.
