Governor candidate Greitens to be in Joplin Monday

(From the Eric Greitens campaign)

Former Navy SEAL and conservative outsider, Eric Greitens, officially announced his entrance into the Republican primary for Missouri Governor Saturday. Greitens launched what he called a mission to move Missouri forward.

Greitens’ message was clear at the announcement rally with hundreds of supporters in attendance. He’s a conservative, he’s a political outsider, he’s a proven leader, and he’s the only person in the Governor’s race that is tough enough to take on the career politicians and corrupt political insiders who currently control Jefferson City.

Greitens said, “I’m running for Governor because we need a political outsider to move Missouri forward. Like you, I’m tired of the career politicians and lobbyists who are ruining our state. I know that, together, we can do better. I look forward to a spirited campaign across Missouri, and I hope to earn your vote.”

Greitens is pro-life and pro-Second Amendment. He believes in low taxes and smaller, less intrusive government. Greitens said his biggest priority as governor is creating more private sector paychecks and bigger private sector paychecks. And pledged to reform Jefferson City by banning gifts for lobbyists, closing the revolving door between the legislature and lobbyists, and subjecting all statewide elected officials to term limits.

Greitens’ announcement in St. Louis kicked off his Mission to Move Missouri Forward Statewide Tour that will take him to every corner of Missouri next week. The full tour schedule is listed below for planning purposes:
