The US Secretary of state Michael Pompeo may leave his post and be elected to Congress from Kansas, reported CNN.
The election of a Senator from Kansas will be held in 2020. The representative of the state in Congress, Pat Robert announced earlier that he will not nominate his candidacy.
It is reported that to participate in the election campaign Pompeo inclines his entourage. In particular, the Republican leader in the Upper House Mitch McConnell personally calls on the Secretary of state to take this step.
According to media reports, Pompeo takes this idea seriously and is ready to resign. In addition, he has already agreed to meet with the leading consultant of the Republican Party Ward Baker.
Mike Pompeo has been the US Secretary of state since April 26, 2018. In this position, he was replaced by Rex Tillerson.
