*from the Wichita Business Journal Online – March 30th, 2010
Congressional candidate Mike Pompeo says he has been endorsed by the political action committee of Koch Industries, Inc.
The Republican candidate says his campaign received a contribution from KOCHPAC.
“The Koch Companies are among the largest employers in the 4th District, providing thousands of good jobs for people in south-central Kansas,” Pompeo said in a news release. “I am grateful for this showing of support from the hundreds of employee-contributors to KOCHPAC, and from the thousands of employees they represent.”
A representative from the political action committee wasn’t immediately available for comment.
The endorsement comes after Pompeo received the support from some of Wichita’s largest aviation company executives, including Cessna’s Jack Pelton and Hawker Beechcraft Corp.’s Bill Boisture .
Other candidates in the 4th District Republican primary include Wichita oilman Wink Hartman and state Sen. Jean Schodorf.
