    Mr. Pompeo is a good guy, but politically naive. It would be interesting for Mike to reconcile his duty, honor, and country background with that of many of his supporters that are known moderates RINOs and have no idea what honor is. The question for Mike is how much is his soul worth?

  3. James

    I don’t know many of those listed so I can’t say if they are RINO’s or not, but those names that I do recognize are definitely not RINOs.

    And I know Mike himself and he is rock solid conservative. I really hope the 4th doesn’t turn ugly a year before the election.

  4. Steve

    Beren, Marten, Turner and Wolhford have worked against Republicans before. This doesn’t mean that Mike is not a good candidate or that the race will turn ugly. I believe Wolhford was involved on Democrat Carl Brewer’s campaign so was Jeff Turner. Some of the people on the list have conservative credentials, but some will turn on you in a second.

    Steve, don’t forget Steve Martens. He is certainly not pro-life nor conservative, but there is about another half a dozen or so with similar credentials as Mr. Martens on the list. The question is who is Mike Pompeo going to listen to his conservative supporters or the RINOs? or is it who contributes the most money?

    I too was disappointed to see the Pompeo launch committee……………….turncoats, many
    of them. Perhaps he is keeping his enemies close!!!!!!!!

  7. Nate

    Or perhaps he is interested in uniting the Republican party for once. There is a good balance of social conservatives and fiscal conservatives. Pompeo is strongly in the conservative camp, but has support from the entire Republican party. That sounds like a strong candidate to me.
