For over twenty years, Republicans have held the House of Representatives seat in Kansas’ Fourth District. On January 23, 2017, Mike Pompeo, abdicated the seat to take the position as director of the CIA, triggering Governor Brownback to set a special election for April 11. This district contains Wichita, known as the home base of the Koch brothers, and is heavily saturated in Koch-funded projects. Pundits and partisans across the country saw this as an easy GOP win.
