Mike Pompeo to visit Wichita State Friday


Mike Pompeo meets with The Sunflower in November 2016. At the time, Pompeo, who is now U.S. Secretary of State, was a Kansas congressman.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will visit Wichita State University Friday amidst continued speculation that he is considering a 2020 Senate run for retiring Sen. Pat Roberts’ seat.

Pompeo, who represented Wichita in Congress before being tapped for the Trump administration, has become a top adviser of the president.

Pompeo will be in Kansas Thursday and Friday, joined by Ivanka Trump, according to The Wall Street Journal. It is unknown whether the first daughter will join Pompeo on his campus visit Friday.

Earlier this month, Attorney General William Barr visited WSU for a roundtable discussion with local law enforcement.
