Both candidates gave their acceptance speeches virtually. Parson said he has been tested since Day 1 leading Missouri through historic drought, floods, tornadoes, COVID-19, and civil unrest. He says he is hopeful for the future of the state.
Galloway said hope is on the horizon and healthcare, recovery and rebuilding are at the heart of her case for change.
