Former Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R-Kans.) is looking at another run for his old seat.
Tiahrt served Kansas’ 4th District from 1995-2011, giving up his seat to make an unsuccessful Senate bid in 2010. Tiahrt lost in the GOP Senate primary that year to Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), and Pompeo won Tiahrt’s seat.
Pompeo starts off with a considerable cash advantage — he posted $2.1 million cash on hand at the end of the last quarter, while Tiahrt had less than $100 in the bank. But Kansas’ early-August primary date gives him time, if he does enter the race, to mitigate that fundraising disadvantage.
