Congressman Kenny Hulshof (R-MO) gets a boost in his bid to capture the Republican gubernatorial nomination. During a speech to the party faithful at the Republican State Convention in Branson Senator Kit Bond (R-MO) has endorsed Hulshof.
Hulshof says he is honored to have the endorsement of Senator Bond and will work hard to be worthy of that endorsement. Hulshof adds there can be a benefit among those who contribute money to campaigns and he hopes to attract some of that money.
State Treasurer Sarah Steelman (R-MO), Hulshof’s opponent, says she is not at all surprised by Bond’s endorsement of his fellow Member of Congress. Steelman says she doubts many Missourians will be swayed by someone suggesting how they should vote.
