Kansas GOP waits for Tiahrt decision on Congress

Todd Tiahrt

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Republicans are waiting to hear from former Congressman Todd Tiahrt about whether he intends to challenge GOP incumbent Mike Pompeo.

Tiahrt scheduled a meeting with supporters and reporters Thursday afternoon at the Kansas Aviation Museum in Wichita to discuss the Republican primary in the 4th Congressional District of south-central Kansas.

The notice for the event did not say whether Tiahrt would run.

Pompeo has filed for a third, two-year term. The only Democrat running so far is Perry Schuckman of Wichita.

Tiahrt held the seat from 1995 until 2011. He did not seek re-election in 2010 to run for the U.S. Senate but lost a bitter Republican primary to Jerry Moran.

Moran won the Senate seat in November 2010. Pompeo was elected to replace Tiahrt in the House.
