Moran endorses Pompeo

Fresh from dispatching Rep. Todd Tiahrt in the race for a Kansas Senate seat, Rep. Jerry Moran, R-Hays, on Monday endorsed Republican Mike Pompeo to replace Tiahrt in the House of Representatives.

Heavily favored in the November general election against little-known Democrat Lisa Johnston, Moran said he would “welcome the opportunity to serve side-by- side with Mike Pompeo.”

Both candidates said jobs are their major priority and they hope to relax regulation on businesses in an effort to encourage economic expansion.

Pompeo is running against state Rep. Raj Goyle, D-Wichita, for the 4th District seat that Tiahrt, R-Goddard, gave up to run for Senate.
