WICHITA, KS – Kansas State Senator Mike Petersen (R-28) today announced his endorsement of businessman and 4th District Congressional Republican nominee Mike Pompeo.
“Mike Pompeo will be a leader in Congress who will work to encourage economic growth that will bring jobs to Kansas,” commented Petersen. “We need to grow our economy out of the problem we’re in and Mike will work with state and local leaders to bring new businesses and investments to our community. I look forward to working with Mike as a united voice for free market principles.”
Senator Petersen represents the 28th Kansas Senate District, which includes Oaklawn, Derby, Haysville and southeast Wichita.
“Senator Petersen and I know government bailouts and out of control spending have put our state and country in economic peril,” said Pompeo. “If we’re going to truly recover from massive job loss and our economic collapse, the federal government must create an environment that encourages businesses, companies and entrepreneurs to invest and grow their operations.”
“Thousands of jobs have been lost in the 4th District of Kansas because the Obama-Pelosi agenda of expanded government and bailout legislation has further stalled our economy,” continued Pompeo. “When the federal government meddles into and adds choking regulation into the private business sector, companies stop expanding. Congress must stop spending money to bailout bad business and instead let business owners and entrepreneurs invest and grow our economy.”
