In the 163rd District, where Rep. Cody Smith is term-limited, two Carthage residents, Zach Hatcher and Cathy Jo Loy, both Republicans, filed.

In the 162nd District, incumbent Republican Bob Bromley was the only one who filed.

Three candidates filed in the 161st District, including two Republicans, incumbent Lane Roberts, Joplin, and Thomas Ross, Joplin, and one Democrat, Shawna Ackerson, Joplin.

Rep. Ben Baker, the Neosho Republican incumbent, is the only person who filed in the 160th District.

Incumbent Republican Dirk Deaton is the only one who has filed in the 159th District.

Rep. Ann Kelley, R-Lamar, is the only person who has filed in the 127th District.

Ask all the Republican candidates if they are for or against this kind of nonsense before they earn your vote.

"Whether it's a water faucet that doesn't put out water, or a shower that no water, or a washing machine where you can be in the middle of the greatest waterfall, you know, you have states that can't get rid of their water, washing machines, they don't give enough water" Donald J Trump.

This list of candidates is truly distressing. So few dems but on the other side, are these Cheney, Romney Republicans or is missouri being overrun by MAGAts?

There's a temporary delay with the Republican's so called Hunter Biden evidence, as their favorite witness has been having some problems lately:

"Former FBI informant charged with lying about Joe and Hunter Biden re-arrested
Alexander Smirnov, who the FBI said has ties to Russian intelligence officials, is charged with making false allegations that were at the "heart" of the GOP's impeachment inquiry."


Also that picture of 'cocaine' on the tablesaw turned out to look a lot more like sawdust than anyone's cocaine.

Whoooops again!

The House majority of Stooges and Eric Burlison will have to either find some more better evidence, or they will need to find another informant to tell them what they want to hear again.
