Representatives Ed Emery, R-Lamar, Marilyn Ruestman, R-Joplin, and Kevin Wilson, R-Neosho, are supporting Goodman, according to the article:
During a press conference at a Joplin hotel, Goodman said he had already enlisted the support of several dozen state and local officials representing areas in the district, including Rep. Kevin Wilson, R-Neosho; Rep. Marilyn Ruestman, R-Joplin; and Rep. Ed Emery, R-Lamar.
Wilson introduced Goodman on Friday as “the next congressman from the 7th District” and “a very good friend of mine” before hailing Goodman’s “quiet leadership” in the state Legislature and his commitment to “family values.”
“We need to have leaders in Washington, D.C., that understand the average citizen in the United States,” Wilson said.
When asked for comment about Goodman’s endorsements in a Friday phone interview, Nodler said: “I am not going to comment on competitors’ campaigns at all.”
I wonder what this means. Is Jack Goodman that attractive a candidate (and perhaps he is), or do Emery, Wilson, and Mrs. Ruestman have a problem stomaching the idea of Gary Nodler in Congress?
