Today, Governor-elect Eric Greitens announced his support of a leadership ticket for the Missouri Republican Party led by former U.S. Attorney Todd Graves. This team will work with the Governor-elect to advance conservative causes across the state and build on the party's success from 2016.
Governor-elect Greitens has endorsed longtime conservative leader Todd Graves to become the next chairman of the Missouri Republican Party. Todd is a partner at Graves-Garrett and former U.S. Attorney, appointed by George W. Bush after being twice elected as Platte County Prosecuting Attorney. He serves as President of the Pony Express Council of the Boy Scouts of America and is a founding board member of the Kansas City Missouri Police Foundation. Raised on a family farm near Tarkio, Missouri, Todd lives with his wife and four children on a farm just north of Kansas City.
Governor-elect Greitens said, "Todd Graves is a conservative fighter, a proven leader in business and his community, and a native Missourian. He will make an outstanding party chair and I’m excited to work with him and his team to take Missouri in a new direction."
