FILE- In this July 8, 2019 file photo, former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach addresses the crowd as he announces his candidacy for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate in Leavenworth, Kan. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020, that he'll remain in his post as the country's top diplomat, forgoing a run for Senate from Kansas that many Republicans have seen as the party's best hope of retaining what should be a guaranteed GOP seat from the deep red state. Without him, Washington Republicans worry that Kobach, a polarizing conservative who lost a race for governor last year, would become the GOP's Senate candidate and lose in the general election.  (AP Photo/Charlie Riedel, File)
