Kansas Official Hails Special Election Changes

Congressman Mike Pompeo has been confirmed as CIA director. A special election will be held to replace him.

Kansas Congressman Mike Pompeo has been confirmed as the nation's CIA Director and he will soon his resign from his seat in Congress. That means a special election will have to be held in the Kansas 4th District to replace him. Governor Sam Brownback signed a bill last week to give the state a little more time to organize and hold special elections. State of Kansas Director of Elections Bryan Caskey says elections are complicated than they were years ago and local election officials need the extra time.

The period for organizing and holding special elections had been 60 days, it's now extended to 90 days. The election to replace Pompeo will be the first special election for a Congressional seat in Kansas since 1950.
