Pompeo reportedly meeting with top GOP strategist as he mulls 2020 Senate bid

Monday 11:45 GMT

The nonpartisan Cook Political Report currently has the 2020 Senate race in the state going “likely Republican.”

The meeting between Pompeo and Baker, which was first reported by Politico, comes as Republican leaders including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., are aggressively wooing the secretary of state to run for the open seat. Pompeo, who previously served as a congressman from Kansas, has not made a decision on whether or not he will run, but his aides have said he's in no rush to make a call anytime soon.

At the midpoint of the Trump presidency, the Texas panhandle goes some way to show the extent of unwavering loyalty that remains among his base.

In the 2018 midterm elections, the Texas panhandle rejected an extreme rightwing insurgency that bore similarity to the brand of Republicanism embodied by the Trump presidency with its nods to white nationalism and racist politics. The region voted overwhelmingly to re-elect state senator Kel Seliger, deemed the most centrist Republican in the Texas state senate, against two primary opponents pushing an extremist platform.
