Pompeo Focuses on Jobs and Experience in First Debate
WICHITA, KS – Businessman, military veteran and Kansas 4th District Republican nominee Mike Pompeo focused on his real-world experience of creating jobs and his plan to reduce the out of control spending of the Obama-Pelosi agenda during tonight’s debate at Wichita State University.
“I’ve spent the past 15 years creating jobs in Kansas,” Pompeo said. “I’ve created over 400 jobs right here in Kansas. My opponent has spent his time as a politician in the Kansas House of Representatives putting together regulations that made it even harder to grow jobs here in Kansas.”
Pompeo stated his top priority in Congress would be to create an economic environment to encourage risk takers and entrepreneurs to invest in jobs and companies here in south-central Kansas.
“If you’re looking for someone with real-world experience, who has lived it and done it – someone who has created jobs at 119th Street West, just north of K-42 – instead of someone like our President has never operated in the business world or the real world, then I would be a very good representative for you.”
During the debate, Pompeo noted endorsements from key leaders in the Kansas economy, such as the Kansas Livestock Association, Kansas Farm Bureau, and the aircraft industry.
“Tonight, voters got a look at two very different candidates. One candidate who thinks that the Obama-Pelosi way is the right way to continue in our nation – and another candidate who knows that limited government and personal responsibility are the things that will bring jobs back here to Kansas.”
