WICHITA, KS – Congressman Mike Pompeo today officially announced his candidacy for re-election for the Kansas 4th District Congressional seat during a news conference at Colonel James Jabara Airport in Wichita.
“Kansans across the 4th District sent me to Washington a year ago and delivered a message that was loud and clear: Get the federal government out of the way so Kansans can succeed.
We have done a lot over the past 10 months to reduce the size of the federal government and eliminate burdensome federal regulations that are destroying Kansas jobs—but there’s still plenty of work to be done,” Pompeo said.
Today’s announcement comes as Pompeo is in the middle of a three day campaign tour across the 4th District of Kansas.
“Since January I’ve seen the massive amount of federal regulation and out of control spending preventing job creators in Kansas from succeeding. It’s amazing to me that some politicians in Washington still don’t get it. Now is not the time to spend more and increase taxes. We cannot create more uncertainty in an already troublesome economy. Instead, we must work toward a smaller, more humble federal government—and if we do that, I know our country will get back on a track toward prosperity.”
Pompeo’s 2012 Re-Election Campaign Kickoff Tour continues through Wednesday with stops in Goddard, Kingman, Anthony, Sedan, El Dorado, Wellington, Newton, Independence, Coffeyville and Wichita.
