Kansas 4th Congressional District
James Thompson is a veteran, father, and civil rights attorney running in Kansas’ 4th Congressional District for the April 11th special election to replace Congressman Mike Pompeo, Trump’s rightwing appointee to the CIA. After facing homelessness and deep economic hardship growing up, Thompson went on to serve in the U.S. Army and the Presidential Honor Guard, later using the GI Bill to afford his education at Wichita State University. Thompson understands firsthand the need to build an economy that works for everyone, not just the wealthiest and most privileged, and he’s running for Congress to make sure all Kansas families have access to the same opportunities for success that he had. He’ll work tirelessly for quality public education, for the rights of immigrants and refugees, for affordable health care access, and for good living wage jobs, and he’ll stand up to Republican attacks on working people.
