  • I am pleased to announce this endorsement from Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee: "Congressman Mike Pompeo is the true conservative in this race. But this is about more than his solid pro-life record, his strong opposition to Obamacare, and his impressive military and national security background--this is about how he's been an effective legislator for Kansas common sense values. I'm proud to stand with Mike as he continues to fight for Kansas…and end Washington's wasteful spending." “…[West Point graduate] Mike Pompeo served as a cavalry officer in the U.S. Army, leading troops as they patrolled the Iron Curtain before the fall of the Berlin Wall. After leaving active duty, Mike earned a law degree from Harvard Law School and served as an editor of the Harvard Law Review. “After practicing law for three years, Mike came back to his mother’s family roots in South Central Kansas and founded Thayer Aerospace along with three partners. In less than a decade, this aerospace manufacturing company grew to more than 400 Kansas employees. Following a decade as CEO of Thayer Aerospace, Mike sold his interest…[becoming] President of Sentry International, an oilfield manufacturing, distribution and service company. “In Congress, Mike has focused on freeing private enterprise to succeed…launched a national effort--America Flies--promoting the aviation industry…has also been at the center of the debates regarding American energy production, halting regulatory overreach, particularly [in] production agriculture, and reducing the imposition of burdens on entrepreneurs and small business leaders…” — Grace Klaassen, HuckPAC Kansas Director
