GoylePompeoBoth Raj Goyle and Mike Pompeo got an early start this morning on their final pitch as voters go to the polls in the 4th Congressional District.
Goyle broke from the gate first at 4:32 a.m. with an e-mail to supporters headlined “Today is THE DAY.”
Goyle, D-Wichita, highlighted his record as a state legislator, saying he voted to cut taxes and reduce spending, worked across the aisle with Republicans and wrote the law restricting funeral protests by Fred Phelps.
“In Congress, I promise to wake up every morning and go to bed every night working to protect and create Kansas jobs,” Goyle wrote. “I promise to fight outsourcing and work to reward companies for creating jobs in America, not overseas. I promise to work to restore fiscal discipline. And as I did in the State House, I promise to work with anyone for good ideas, regardless of ideology or party label. ”
Never miss a local story.
Fourteen minutes later, Pompeo, a Republican national committeeman, was up with his message, headlined “Thank You and Bless You.”
“Today is the day that we have all been pointed towards for so long,” Pompeo wrote. “It's the day Americans, individually, choose their preference for leadership and the day those who have offered themselves as leaders learn whether the call is for them. It is how we keep our Republic strong.
“Susan, Nick and I are looking forward to spending today with you. It will provide us a chance to say thank you to each of you who have knocked on one more door, made one more phone call, and pushed out one more sign.”
The Pompeo message linked to a video of his Aunt Joan praising him during a campaign lunch in Wellington.
