Pompeo Signals Senate Bid With New Twitter Account

The Kansas City Star reports:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has launched a personal Twitter account in anticipation of a run for an open Senate seat in Kansas. A source close to Pompeo said that the Republican “needed to set up a personal Twitter account for future plans,” strongly indicating the secretary is laying the groundwork for a run.

A second source close to Pompeo confirmed it is his personal account, initially launched in August but only recently activated with imagery and followers. The verified account began collecting followers quickly once it was noticed by journalists on Saturday.
