Freshman U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo has defeated Democratic challenger Robert Tillman to represent the 4th House District in south-central Kansas.

The conservative Republican incumbent campaigned on cutting government spending and repealing the federal health care law. He bucked the rest of the state's all-Republican delegation with his support for ending wind energy tax credits.

Pompeo was elected in 2010 to his first term and was re-elected on Tuesday.

Tillman spent 30 years working on social issues, including 24 years as a court services officer. Tillman supports raising taxes on the top 1 percent of wage earners to help balance the budget.

The last Democrat to hold the 4th District seat was Dan Glickman, who lost to Tiahrt in 1994.
