Today the Trump-Pence campaign announced that Missouri’s entire Republican congressional delegation, as well as all Republican nominees for statewide office, officially endorsed Donald Trump for President of the United States. Additionally, Missouri Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder and congressmen Billy Long and Jason Smith were named Co-Chairs of Mr. Trump’s campaign efforts in Missouri.
The full list of endorsers is as follows:
· U.S. Senator Roy Blunt
· Congressman Sam Graves
· Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler
· Congressman Billy Long
· Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer
· Congressman Jason Smith
· Congresswoman Ann Wagner

“Missouri’s top Republican elected officials and candidates have made it clear today that they are all part of a united Republican effort, powered by an enthusiastic grassroots army, that will work hard to ensure Republican victories in Missouri from the top of the ticket on down,” said Trump Campaign Missouri State Director Aaron Willard.
“I’ve said this many times: we need more jobs and less government,” said U.S. Senator Roy Blunt. “Simply put, Hillary Clinton would be a disaster for Missouri families, jobs, and values. Like Donald Trump, I believe it’s time to put Americans’ safety, jobs, and values first.”
“Like I have done during my entire time in political office, Donald Trump is reaching out to minority communities to spread the message of how and why Republican policies can help grow the educational and economic opportunities in their communities,” said Trump campaign Missouri Co-Chair Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder. “With his school choice and tax reform proposals, Donald Trump will revitalize America’s minority communities and ensure that all of our citizens have the best chance to succeed.”
“I look forward to working with Donald Trump as our next president because I know he will put our country first to grow jobs and the economy, negotiate better trade deals and craft an America First energy policy,” said Trump campaign Missouri Co-Chair Congressman Billy Long.
“There is a clear choice this election cycle. On one side we have Hillary Clinton and Jason Kander who want to continue the same big government policies that will regulate away every aspect of our family life, our farming traditions and the ingenuity of the American business owner. This is the same failed playbook of the liberal left that has put rural America and our economy in a stranglehold. On the other is Donald Trump, who will put an end to business as usual in Washington, put our farmers first, revitalize our economy and Make America Great Again,” said Trump campaign Missouri Co-Chair Congressman Jason Smith.
