Governor Hails Nomination of Kansas Congressman Pompeo to Head CIA

Governor Sam Brownback calls it “fantastic” that Congressman Mike Pompeo has been nominated to head the CIA.

President-elect Donald Trump announced Friday that he’s selecting the three-term Wichita Republican for the job. Pompeo is a graduate of West Point and Harvard Law School and a member of the House intelligence committee.

Brownback calls Pompeo “tough on terrorism.”

“Mike is smart, he’s tough, he will do an awesome job. It’s a great honor to have a Kansan nominated for a position like that and I’m very happy for him. I think that’s a wonderful pick,” says Brownback.
Pompeo’s nomination will need to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate. If he’s confirmed, there will be a special election to fill his 4th District congressional seat in south central Kansas.
Brownback has also been mentioned for possible jobs in the Trump administration, but he would not say if he’s been in contact with the transition team.
