Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach predicts 22% of registered voters will cast a ballot in next Tuesday's primary election.

That's similar to the statewide turnout in the 2008 primary, which he says is the one most like this year's contest.

Higher turnout is expected this year in the Wichita area, where former Republican Congressman Todd Tiahrt is trying to take back his old seat from incumbent Congressman Mike Pompeo. Kobach says this could mean 30% of registered voters in the district might show up at the polls.

A national anti-abortion leader has asked the Office of Congressional Ethics to investigate U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo for alleged ethics violations during his re-election campaign.

Troy Newman is president of Operation Rescue. Last week, he sent public documentation to the agency accusing Pompeo of posting links to campaign material on his House website.

Pompeo’s office says it has found nothing that rises to a “material failure” to comply with all requirements.

A longtime U.S. Congressman from South Central Kansas revealed this afternoon that he would once again run for office. The announcement was made at the Kansas Aviation Museum in Wichita.

“After much thoughtful deliberation and prayer, I’m announcing that I’m a candidate for Congress in the 4th district of Kansas.”

Former U.S. Representative Todd Tiahrt says he’s challenging fellow Republican Mike Pompeo in this year’s midterm elections.

The all-Republican Kansas delegation in the U.S. House of Representatives was evenly split on the House's budget bill.

Congressmen Mike Pompeo and Tim Huelskamp voted against the bill.

Both said one reason was because it undoes some of the sequestration cuts that took effect earlier this year.

Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins supported the agreement because it cuts long-term spending, and she says there would be increases in short-term spending with or without this bill.

The all-Republican Kansas congressional delegation is almost unanimous in its opposition to a U.S. military action in Syria.

Kansas Congressman Tim Huelskamp's bill seeking a constitutional amendment to gay marriage is picking up support, but not from Kansas colleagues.

Huelskamp's bill has picked up at least 47 co-sponsors in the U.S. House since its introduction a month ago.

But co-sponsors from Kansas are absent from this list.

U.S. Representative Mike Pompeo says he strongly believes in defending traditional marriage and is looking at the amendment carefully.

Representatives Kevin Yoder and Lynn Jenkins declined comment.

Rep. Mike Pompeo issued a press release Friday saying that House Speaker John Boehner is putting him the committee that oversees the U.S. Intelligence Agency.
