The Joplin Globe endorsed Seventh District Congressman Roy Blunt's bid for a seventh two-year term today:
While we met with Blunt’s Democratic challenger Richard Monroe, his anti-Blunt campaign failed to provide us with a detailed plan on what he would do if elected.
We would challenge Blunt to be less partisan in his rhetoric and work across the aisle to keep the country safe from terror, revive our national economy and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
Blunt is concluding his sixth term in office, and although we don’t always agree with his decisions, we believe he has earned a seventh term.
Of course, the Globe Editorial Board had a ridiculous assertion when it said it was easy to see why the voters kept returning Blunt to office every two years. Could the incredibly weak candidates fielded by the Democratic party have anything to do with it?
Let's not forget that during the 2006 and 2004 elections, the Democratic Party's candidate for Seventh District was John Truman, who not only was the director of Phone Sex Grandma, but also did not even live in the district. That certainly made it easier for people to cast their ballot for Blunt.
