WICHITA, Kansas (AP) Former Kansas congressman Todd Tiahrt plans to meet with supporters Thursday afternoon to discuss the Republican primary in the 4th District he used to represent.

The event at the Kansas Aviation Museum in Wichita comes after weeks of speculation in Republican circles that Tiahrt was considering a bid to return to Congress.

The seat for the 4th District in southcentral Kansas is now by Republican Mike Pompeo, who already has filed for a third, two-year term.

Tiahrt held the seat from 1995 until 2011. He did not seek re-election in 2010 to run for the U.S. Senate but lost a bitter Republican primary to Jerry Moran.

Moran won the Senate seat in November 2010, when Pompeo was elected to replace Tiahrt in the House. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
