Being a nice guy is necessary, but we really need definitive criteria in selecting our congressional representative. Mike Pompeo clearly stands out.
Pompeo has a degree in mechanical engineering from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, where he graduated first in his class. He has a postgraduate degree from Harvard Law School, where he served as editor of the Harvard Law Review.
Pompeo served as a captain leading our troops along the Czech and East German borders before the fall of the wall. He founded an aviation manufacturing business in Kansas. He is president of a Wichita-based oil field equipment manufacturing and servicing company, providing him with an in-depth understanding of two major south-central Kansas industries. He is a leader in his church, a conservative and has been active in the Republican National Committee.
Pompeo is the clear leader to serve as the 4th Congressional District representative
