INDEPENDENCE, KS – State Senate Majority Leader and Republican nominee for Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt (R-Independence) Sunday endorsed Wichita businessman and military veteran Mike Pompeo for 4th District Congress.
“Congress needs more business leaders like Mike Pompeo, who know how to meet a payroll and live within their means,” said Schmidt. “Mike understands how the burdens of government overregulation and a punitive tax system hurt the economy, small businesses and working families. We need Mike Pompeo in the U.S. House of Representatives.”
“I am honored by Senator Schmidt’s support,” stated Pompeo. “Derek will be a strong law and order attorney general, and I look forward to working with him on issues like immigration that impact our national and economic security. He and I both support the Arizona law. If the federal government will not do its job in securing the borders, we must allow states to protect their citizens.”
Pompeo picked up Schmidt’s endorsement while visiting Independence and attending Schmidt’s annual BBQ fundraiser.
