And so it begins. In earnest. As Breitbart reported on Tuesday, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is launching a political action committee to “buoy Republican chances of retaking majorities in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate in next year’s midterm elections, along with helping conservatives win, down-ticket, in state legislature and local races.”
