“Hillary has the strength and experience to lead our nation,'’ Warren Hearnes states in the release. “As someone who has spent a lifetime diligently working to improve Missouri’s public education system, I personally applaud Hillary for her continuous commitment to reforming our public schools – both during her time in Arkansas and now in the United States Senate. That’s the kind of leadership we need in Washington.
“Hillary’s campaign operation in Missouri is strong, with a large volunteer network that is already hard at work, phone banking and spreading the word about Hillary’s experience and commitment to the issues that matter most to Missouri families. Rest assured that if you cast a vote for Hillary, she will be ready to lead you – and our country — from day one in the White House.”
Hearnes was governor from 1965 to 1973.
