What Is The Biggest Threat To Kansas?

KSAL StaffAugust 14, 2015

The Kansas delegation demurred when it came to what was likely the most interesting audience question of a congressional summit hosted by business leaders.

Is the Islamic State or Russia more of a threat to the United States today?

After a long silence Friday by the three Republicans, Rep. Tim Huelskamp took a stab at it. He said Fort Riley, which in his congressional district, is on the front lines of the fight against the Islamic State and so it is first on his mind.

Rep. Mike Pompeo told them no one answered the question because it is “a bit of a parlor game.” He cited threats from China, Syria and radical Islamic extremism in every state, including Kansas.

Rep. Lynn Jenkins attacked the Obama administration over national security funding.
