From Massachusetts to Montana, political figures have been coming to Missouri – all in hopes of having an impact in this year’s US Senate race between Senator Jean Carnahan and challenger Jim Talent. Leading lawmakers from both parties have made stops in the Show-Me State, from the President to the leader of the Senate. In fact, one day saw five US Senators from four states stumping for the two major party candidates. Senator John Kerry, a Democrat from Massachusetts, came to Missouri to help Senator Carnahan. He says the national parties understand the importance of Missouri’s US Senate race. A sentiment Republican Senator Conrad Burns from Montana, who was in the state helping Republican candidate Jim Talent, echoes. He expects the makeup of the Senate to have a big impact, especially in the agriculture sector. And, Senator Bond says when he travels to other states to campaign for fellow Republicans, everyone wants to know how the campaign is going back home.
