Mike Pompeo (R) needed to be replaced by a special election after he was selected as President Trump’s CIA director, and now he has been replaced by Republican Ron Estes! Thank goodness!
He edged out a 52-45 victory over his Democrat opponent in the state of Kansas. Looks like Trump-backed candidates KEEP WINNING!
