A Wichita attorney has announced plans to challenge Congressman Mike Pompeo next year.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Dan Giroux, a Democrat, made his announcement Thursday. Giroux said in a news release that the people of south-central Kansas need a representative who will stand up for them and "not special interests."

He's a partner at Dugan & Giroux law firm. The firm's website says Giroux was raised in Wichita along with his 10 brothers and sisters. He was an assistant district attorney in Sedgwick County between 1999 and 2003 before joining the law firm.

James Richardson, a volunteer with Pompeo for Congress and the congressman's former campaign manager, said Pompeo will continue to be a "strong, conservative voice" for Kansas values in Washington.
