I congratulate all of our Republican candidates for the spirited campaigns that they ran in this important election year. All of our Republican candidates understand that the people of Missouri are looking for elected leadership that will improve their lives and move our state and country forward.
In Missouri we have been blessed with Republican leaders who focused on tackling inherited Democrat messes by solving our state’s budget crisis, making education our number one priority and fixing a broken social welfare system that was bankrupting our state and not providing the kind of quality care that Missourians expect and deserve.
Today we elected leaders at all levels of government who are committed to conservative principles of governance that include lower taxes, fiscal discipline, economic growth, respect for human life and limited government. These are the fundamental beliefs of our Party and the principles that guide our elected officials’ decisions.
The Republican Party of Missouri understands that times are tough. People are hurting. Our candidates have ideas and an agenda that will continue to move our state forward and address people’s problems. As this campaign transitions into the general election, we look forward to sharing our vision with the people of Missouri. We believe that Missourians will see the stark contrast between the concrete plan that Republicans have to improve the lives of every Missourian and the failed policies and empty rhetoric that the Democrats will put forward.
We are pleased that Kenny Hulshof will join Senator McCain at the top of our ticket. Kenny is an incredible man of integrity who understands what it takes to work with Republicans and Democrats to deliver results for the people of Missouri.
John McCain, Kenny Hulshof, Peter Kinder, Mike Gibbons, Brad Lager and Mitch Hubbard – it doesn’t get any better than that.
