WICHITA, KS – Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney today announced his endorsement of Wichita businessman Mike Pompeo in the Kansas 4th District Congressional race.
“Mike Pompeo is a successful businessman who has created hundreds of jobs in Kansas. He understands that the federal government must get out of the way of private sector job creators. We don’t need professional politicians in Washington, D.C., we need more leaders with experience in the workplace,” Romney said. “Mike will fight for a smaller federal government and work to put an end to the overreaching and intrusive policies of President Obama and Speaker Pelosi.”
Romney and his Free and Strong America PAC are committed to advancing conservative social, fiscal, and foreign policies that are essential to our nation’s strength and freedom.
“Governor Romney and I share the same belief that the false hope and the failed policies of Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi must come to an end,” said Pompeo. “More stimulus, more spending and more borrowing is not the answer for hard-working Kansans who can’t find employment.” Pompeo continued, “I look forward to being part of a return to personal responsibility and freedom as the solutions for America – not more government as offered to us by President Obama and Speaker Pelosi.”
“We cannot afford to send someone to Congress who’s first vote will be for – and every vote thereafter will be with — Speaker Pelosi,” Pompeo said. “We need a Congressman who will represent Kansans and not the failed Democrat agenda that has destroyed jobs and our economy. I will take on that fight in Washington and work to repeal Obamacare and other destructive legislation that promises to further destroy our economy and workforce.”
