Pompeo considering Kansas Senate bid

(CNN) -- Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is considering a run for a Kansas Senate seat seriously enough that he met Sunday with leading GOP consultant Ward Baker, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed to CNN. The source said Pompeo "is focused on his job as secretary of state, but he is listening" to those urging him to run.

Actually Pompeo took a look at the "longevity prospects" for a Trump Administration Official and immediately started looking for another job.

He'd be great. And would beat Susan Wagle from Wichita.

Why not? Kan-ass just can't seem to do without evangelical idiots representing it. From what little he's shown working for the current WH*, he's the perfect poster boy for the old adage: "Better to be silent than talk and be proven a fool."

I was disappointed to find, after reading the entire article, that Pompeo is considering a run for the US Senate and not the Kansas Senate. You'd think a writer for CNN would know the difference.
