Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is hosting a fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn in Colorado Springs on Oct. 22 as part of his pledge to help Republicans in their ground game to take back Congress and eventually the White House.
Pompeo plans to make endorsements in Republican primaries, so he’s a solid bet for Lamborn.
Pompeo will host a VIP event before-hand and deliver a speech during the fundraiser dinner, where tickets start at $250.
Pompeo formed the Championing American Values PAC earlier this year and has been featured as the keynote speaker at a number of Republican events all summer.
There’s a lot of speculation Pompeo plans to run for president in 2024 — mostly because the media are trying to stir the pot between Donald Trump and his former State Department chief.
Trump is telling Republicans they’re going to like what he decides, which could mean he’s in, or his base will approve of the candidate he endorses.
Lamborn has held the 5th Congressional District seat for 15 years. He won the last election with nearly 58% of the vote.
