Topeka Kansas Republicans want to make the state a model for the nation after several conservative primary victories in Tuesday's election.
Congressman Mike Pompeo says that during his first 19 months in office he has watched what happens when states are bold.
He says people in Washington question why they cannot do what Gov. Sam Brownback is doing in Kansas. They also point to steps taken by conservatives in Wisconsin, or by Gov. Bobby Jindal in Louisiana.
Pompeo says Kansas can point others in the right direction.
Pompeo was unopposed in Tuesday's primary as he seeks a second term in the U.S. House from the Wichita area district. In November, he'll face Democrat Robert Tillman, a political newcomer and retired Wichita court services officer.
