James Thompson has won the Democrat nomination for a congressional seat in Kansas that he first sought last year in a special election after now Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joined the Trump administration.

The Wichita Democrat advances to a November matchup with Republican Rep. Ron Estes.

Thompson, a Wichita civil rights attorney, held Estes to a single-digit victory in the nation's first congressional special election last year after President Donald Trump took office. Thompson defeated Laura Lombard in the Democrat primary.
