State Senator Jack Goodman (R-Mount Vernon) wants to work on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. Goodman is in the midst of a tour of cities and towns in Missouri’s 7th Congressional District announcing he is running for Congressman Roy Blunt’s seat in the House of Representatives. Blunt is seeking the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator Christopher “Kit” Bond, who is retiring after four terms.
Goodman’s first stop on the announcement tour was Joplin, with stops then scheduled in Mount Vernon, Springfield, and Branson. Additional campaign stops are also scheduled for Saturday and Monday.
Goodman, an attorney, was first elected to the General Assembly when he won a Missouri House seat in 2002. He won a special election to the State Senate in 2005.
