WICHITA, KS – U.S. Senator Pat Roberts has announced his endorsement of businessman and military veteran Mike Pompeo in the Kansas 4th District Congressional race.
“Mike Pompeo’s leadership is exactly what Kansas needs in Washington,” Senator Roberts said. “In this era of out-of-control spending, government takeovers in too many areas of our lives, and looming tax increases, Mike Pompeo will stand up against the Obama-Pelosi agenda. Mike has always had a calling for public service, previously serving in the United States Army. As a former Marine, I deeply appreciate his service to our country and believe his military experience is what’s needed in the Congress in this very challenging time.”
Senator Roberts joined the Republican nominee to replace Congressman Todd Tiahrt at the new Pompeo Campaign Headquarters as part of an open house.
“I am humbled to have the endorsement and support of Senator Roberts,” Pompeo said. “Senator Roberts and I stand united infighting to reduce federal spending, taxes and government regulation in our everyday lives. We must create an environment that will sustain economic growth and bring jobs back to Kansas, not enable the Obama-Pelosi agenda.”
“Now is also the time to secure our borders and other ports of entry,” continued Pompeo. “We must fight illegal immigration and encourage those who wish to come to America to do so through the legal process. We need reforms that do not reward those who remain in our country illegally. I know what it takes to secure a border, and I look forward to working with Senator Roberts and the other members of the Kansas delegation to get it done.”
