WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Congressman Mike Pompeo and his challenger in the Aug. 5 Republican primary will participate next month in a political forum hosted by the Wichita Crime Commission.

Pompeo is running for a third term in Kansas’ 4th Congressional District. He’s being challenged for the GOP nomination by Todd Tiahrt, who held the seat for 16 years before giving it up in 2010 for an unsuccessful run for U.S. Senate.

The forum takes place July 7 at the Scotch and Sirloin Restaurant in Wichita and is open to Crime Commission members and their guests. The format allows candidates to make opening and closing statements and take questions submitted by commission members to the moderator.
