MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will give a Landon Lecture at Kansas State University next month.
Pompeo will speak Sept. 6 at McCain Auditorium. He has been secretary of state since March 2018. Before that, he served a brief time as President Donald Trumps director of the CIA.
His speech comes as speculation swirls that Pompeo might run for a political office. He said last month that a campaign for U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts seat in the Senate was off the table but that has not stopped the conjecture.
