Pompeo says he's 'ruled out' Kansas Senate bid in 2020

By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (pahm-PAY'-oh) appears to be ruling out a Kansas Senate race in 2020.

Pompeo, who represented Kansas' 4th Congressional District from 2011 to 2017, says he'll serve as secretary of state as long as President Donald Trump wants him to.

Pompeo was asked on NBC's "Today" show Thursday if he's interested in running for the Senate and replied, "I love doing what I'm doing." When an interviewer said Pompeo sounded as though he wasn't ruling it out, Pompeo said, "It's ruled out."

Last month, Pompeo deflected speculation he might run for retiring Republican Sen. Pat Roberts' seat, telling Fox News he was focused on his current job.
