— Freshman U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo has defeated Democratic challenger Robert Tillman to represent the 4th House District in south-central Kansas.

The conservative Republican incumbent campaigned on cutting government spending and repealing the federal health care law. He bucked the rest of the state's all-Republican delegation with his support for ending wind energy tax credits.

Pompeo was elected in 2010 to his first term and was re-elected on Tuesday.

Tillman spent 30 years working on social issues, including 24 years as a court services officer. Tillman supports raising taxes on the top 1 percent of wage earners to help balance the budget.

The last Democrat to hold the 4th District seat was Dan Glickman, who lost to Tiahrt in 1994.

So the Koch Bros. personal representative in Congress gets re-elected. Wonderful.
