Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been rumored to be considering a run for the United States Senate in his home state of Kansas. Pompeo recently shot down those rumors.
According to The Hill:
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday would not definitively rule out a Senate run in his home state of Kansas but said it’s “not something that I want to do.”
“I’ve watched my life take turns that one would never have expected, but it’s not something I want to do,” Pompeo said on “Fox & Friends.”
“I want to stay here and continue to perform the mission that I’m serving President Trump and I hope doing a good turn for the American people as well,” he added.
Pompeo spoke warmly of Kansas, calling it “home” before adding that “it’s my intention to stay here and continue to serve as President Trump’s secretary of State.”
President Trump has said he expects Pompeo to stay in his administration unless it becomes apparent that the GOP could lose the seat in Kansas.
