TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo plans to visit Wichita later this week for an event about workforce development with Ivanka Trump, an appearance that could raise fellow Republicans’ hopes that he’ll run for the Senate next year.

It’s Pompeo’s fourth visit to Kansas this year and it comes less than seven weeks after gave a lecture at Kansas State University last month that intensified speculation about his plans, though he didn’t directly address it in his remarks and has remained coy for months.

Pompeo plans to participate in an American Workforce Policy Advisory Board round-table discussion Thursday at Wichita State University Tech about workforce development with Republican Rep. Ron Estes, the congressman’s office confirmed. The board is co-chaired by Ivanka Trump.
