If the election for the US House of


Representatives was being held today, and the
candidates were Republican Mike Pompeo and
Democrat Dan Giroux, who would you vote for?

Q6

Now I am going to read to you some


information about Representative Mike
Pompeo, and then ask if you hearing that
makes you more likely or less likely to vote for
him, or if it doesnt make a difference. Mike
Pompeo is an out-of-state hired gun who works
for special interest groups, not the people of
Kansas. Almost 90% of his donations have
come from special interest groups. Thats why
in just the past year, the Wichita metro area
has lost nearly 6,000 jobs. In addition,
Congressman Pompeo stood by and did
nothing to keep Boeing and its jobs in Kansas,
letting good paying jobs leave for Oklahoma
and Washington state. If hearing this makes
you more likely to vote for Mike Pompeo, press
1. If less likely, press 2. If it doesnt make a
difference, press 3. If youre not sure, press 4.
