Congressman Roy Blunt spoke out today on what he’s been hearing on the campaign trail. He finished a 114-county tour of the state over the weekend, which also included the City of St. Louis, where he began.

Blunt says topping the list of concerns he’s hearing from Missourians are government spending, cap-and-trade, taxes on small businesses and the healthcare legislation.

He’s running against state Senator Chuck Pergason in the Republican primary for U.S. Senator Bond’s seat. Secretary of State Robin Carnahan will be a possible opponent in the general election.

Bond is retiring.
