Ruestman joins Giuliani camp

Rep. Marilyn Ruestman, R-Joplin, was one of nine Missouri legislators whose support of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was announced today by the Giuliani's campaign. From the news release:

The Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee today announced several additional Missouri endorsements. Joining Team Rudy in Missouri are State Senator Kevin Engler, State Senator John Griesheimer and State Representatives Steve Hobbs, Timothy Jones, Mike Parson, Ryan Silvey, Joe Smith, Rick Stream and Marilyn Ruestman. Also endorsing Rudy is St. Charles Mayor Patti York.

“Mayor Giuliani is unquestionably the real fiscal conservative leader in the race,” said State Senator Engler, the former Mayor of Farmington. “Not only did he cut taxes and end wasteful government spending as Mayor of New York, he cut crime and reduced welfare. Rudy’s experience and vision will serve all Americans well.”

“We’re glad to have these legislators join our growing Missouri team,” said Missouri House Majority Leader Steven Tilley, who also serves as the Mayor’s Missouri State Co-Chair. “They will help spread Rudy’s record of real results and strong leadership to Missourians because they know he is the only candidate who can beat the Democrats.”

Today’s endorsers join a strong Missouri team that includes U.S. Senator Kit Bond, Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson and State Representatives Kenny Jones, Ed Robb and Kevin Threlkeld.
