WICHITA, Kansas — Congressman Mike Pompeo, responding to the KSN News Poll showing him leading against challenger Todd Tiahrt issued a statement Thursday evening.
“The fact that we have these strong numbers after weeks of negative and misleading phone calls from the Tiahrt team is a real testament to the great work my office has done in serving the 4th Congressional District,” Rep. Pompeo said.
“This is a validation that voters appreciate our ability to actually get meaningful legislation, such as the Small Aircraft Revitalization Act, signed into law, our work to bring the new KC-46A tanker to McConnell Air Force Base, my constant fight against Obama’s horrendous health care law, and my work to roll back big-government regulations that are harming our farmers and rural communities.”
“Anyone that has known me, dating back to my days at West Point, to creating aerospace jobs in Wichita, to my time in Congress, knows I will confront any challenge with full force. Our campaign will not rest, even if the polling grows to show us leading by double this amount.”
“It’s vital for Kansas and America that we have a Congress focused on America’s future, and not pork-barrel projects. With a debt approaching $18 trillion, we cannot afford to go back to earmark funding of the bridge to nowhere, mohair subsidies, and the airport for no one.”
