MISSOURI ELECTION CENTRAL

If we are going to make a difference in the upcoming election, we need to KNOW the candidates. Please post the names of ALL your Congressional candidates on this thread along with any and all information available.

We need names, positions, platforms, news articles, statements, pictures. We need to separate the RINOS from the Conservatives, and most of all, we need to get the liberals of either party OUT!

We can do this if you help. I have started this thread. All you have to do is contribute a little time and a little research. Help us help this country, and between us, we WILL take our country back!

Let's Do It!!!


TOPICS: Free Republic; Government; Politics/Elections; US: Missouri
KEYWORDS: candidates; election; missouri; mo2010; moec2010; politics
Please ping your lists.

Let's DO it!!!

Thanks.

Pinging for later. I suppose I could mention that Robin Carnahan is either corrupt or incompitent. One of her most basic jobs is to write fair and impartial ballot language and just cannot do it.

I know that Bill Stouffer (R) will be running against the ancient one, Ike Skelton (D) here in the Missouri 4th district.

Stouffer ain’t flashy, but everyone I know who’s met the man say he’s solid.

If Missourians really knew Robin Carnahan they would not vote for her. However, it is poison for anyone to make people aware of her lifestyle. The closest that came was when a gay magazine outted her shortly after her election to Secretary of State (”one of our own has won an election!”), and then the article was dropped like a hot potato. Little is known about her husband and, needless to say, he doesn’t go on the campaign trail with her. She did mention that she would like Missouri to re-visit gay marriage, which went down 2-to-1 on a state ballot, but that comment was mentioned once on the radio and, again, dropped from the radar. She will not debate because she cannot answer spontaneous questions, particularly those on gay marriage.

Thanks for the ping O-man. Brian Nieves Rep (98th District) will be running for State Senator District 26. Trying to fill Blaine Luekenmeyer (R) (sp)-leaving due to term limits. District 9 encompasses Franklin County and a portion of Warren County & St. Louis. I will try to post his 'press release' from the State Rally. He's a good solid, constitutional conservative and would make an outstanding state senator for those in the district. Currently he is 'Majority Whip'.

Brian Neives was one of the sponsors of the Joint Resolution “Missouri Health Care Freedom of choice Act” HR NO 57. He spoke on the behalf of a large number of Legislator supporters standing behind him on the stage at the Sovereignty Rally on Tuesday.

I find Mr Neivels a bona fide asset to Constitutional, 10th amendment Sovereignty. I was very impressed at his speaking. In fact, I loosely quoted his opening statement in the rally report I submitted.

He is absolutely solid. I've met him, spoken with him and listened to his stances (which have never varied). I'm trying to work with his campaign staff but have limited funds and time....but do what I can. But truly......he is solid and cares only about the state of Missouri (in other words....this is not a 'stepping' stone to higher office) He's also co-sponsoring the Missouri Sovereignty bill. BTW this is a great idea on tracking...if I can just figure out how to 'isolate' individual items on FR...so I can track them without having to go through all posts/threads...*sigh* Take care ...I'm sure we'll be communicating more frequently and hopefully with other Missouri FReepers as well.

I wanted to post this 'Press Release' from Brian Nieves, Missouri State Rep district 98. He will be running for State Senate for District 26, which encompasses Franklin Cty, parts of Warren and St. Louis...(at this time). He is extremely solid in his views regarding the Constitution and State's Rights. If you are in the district, please, check him out. Let's take back what was stolen....It starts with the 10th Amendment.

I believe Brian is a solid legislator. But we really need to stand with him because the left wingers are going to unleash a lot of hell fire in his direction for supporting sovereignty. He need us to constantly rtemind him we are as committed to the fight as he is.

You’re right....but it’s the same all over the country (God help us.........how did this evil get unleashed??)

Thanks for getting back to me...and really, I hope Missouri FReepers consider a ‘get together. I’m not talking about BBQ’s, drinking, good times, etc......I’m speaking of suggestions and ideas of what we can do as citizens of Missouri (of course I’m not OBJECTING to a beer or 2 LOL)

We have a local group called the Show Me 9-12 Project at meetup.com. We have a couple freepers and several who will be easily recruited when they know how passionate we are about stopping the madness. We have met 3 times and have another meeting scheduled next Tuesday in California, Missouri. Strategy is already being plotted.

We would more than welcome any freepers or anyone else for that matter because this effort is going to require EVERYONE to take back our country. Think of us as the NEW PATRIOTS and not just freepers or tea party. No one single group is enough to win. It takes everyone working together.

Correction: Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer was elected in 2008 to fill the federal House seat for the 9th District (when Kenny Hulshof ran for governor). Rep. Luetkemeyer is still in the US House of Representatives and he is a GREAT conservative.

Rep. Brian Nieves, who is term-limited in the MO House of Representatives, and Col. Jack Jackson, former member of the MO House of Representatives who quit to run for state auditor (and lost), are running for the MO Senate seat in the 26th Senatorial District, currently held by Sen. John Griesheimer, also term-limited.

IMO, all three of these men are great conservatives and would be worthy of election to the seats for which they are running.

When I was visiting offices on Wednesday after the Patriot's rally in the rotunda, one of the staffers gave me the website addresses for people to keep up with legislation, committee-meeting schedules, etc.

For House bills, go to www.house.mo.gov

For Senate bills, go to www.senate.mo.gov

I apologize that I do not know how to create links! If everyone bookmarks those sites and checks them regularly, perhaps we can gather an army of patriots and Freepers on short notice to go to Jefferson City when something of interest and/or major importance is being discussed or voted on.

The rally on Wednesday was fun and fantastic. But unless we continue to make our presence known and keep the pressure on, legislators of both parties may become weak-kneed. Also, by periodically walking the halls of the capital, we will provide moral and physical support for legislators like Nieves and Cunningham, et al, to continue to stand firm for the positions we support.

UPDATE: John Griesheimer....I deeply apologize for this glaring error. There’s no excuse. But Griesheimer is at the end due to term limits....26th District.

Now excuse me while I go pull my head out of my rear. Ty

Rob Schaaf is running for State Senator for the 34th District (up here in NW Missouri). He has been our state Representative for the past several years and has definitely established his conservative credentials. He is a doctor, and firmly believes in the free market way of doing things.

He is running against Martin Rucker, another state Representative whose main claim to fame is that his sons played football (really well) for one of our local high schools and the University of Missouri. I honestly don’t know anything he’s done at the state level, but as a current member of the local school board, he’s a textbook liberal who believes spending public money is the answer to everything.

I am not a member of Dr. Schaaf’s campaign, but sending him to the state senate to replace a retiring democrat would help maintain Missouri’s conservative state legislature.

O_man, I checked both state and national House rosters and didn't find anyone with that, or a similar, name. May be a late addition, but not posted. Not important, just sayin'

All: based on the locations of the responders we've received so far and on my limited knowledge of the state, perhaps a meeting in Rolla would work. It would be a bit-of-a-drive for everyone. I know there's a Denny's near the I-44 exit (assuming it's still open) where we could meet. However, I don't remember if they have a separate meeting room, or if we'd have to simply gather in the main dining room. Late-lunch on a Saturday might work: could drive to Rolla, meet about 2 pm, and drive home same day.

(PS: I'm not available until February.)

Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer, 9th district has been outstanding IMO. I like him better than Hulshof.

He has been having tele-town halls. Calling system calls your phone, you press a key sequence if you want to ask a question. Calls go in a queue. First session had a number of well informed questioners, the second session was full of whiny looters. Made me sad and mad to listen to these fools that can vote.

Blaine handle the calls well even if they are ripping him a new one because the government is not wiping their rear ends to their specifications.

If you have a question and don’t get called on due to time constraint, someone from his office calls you the next day to get an answer to your question.

Bill Stouffer is the real deal. He is a State Senator from a heavily democratic district.He was reelected two years ago with something like 65% of the vote. He is a business owner,very conservitive.

I can do a Rolla meeting. It’s just under 1.5 hour drive time.
I see the St Louis freepers are trying to pull everyone to St Louis. No offense to anyone in St Louis or KC, but politics in Missouri don’t revolve just around St Louis. The center of government is Jefferson city and that is where people can make a difference.

In the Capital you are given the chance, face to face in many occasions, to come into an open door to your district legislative office, sign in, and personally hand out printed info on legislation that matters to you. Plus you have access to the House Speaker, Senate Speaker, Majority Whip etc. Those people are very instrumental in allowing legislation to proceed or die.

After the Sovereignty Rally I received email from every office I visited including the Speakers.

Believe me, a group of people meeting in St louis, Tea Party, freepers etc, is not even on the radar in Jefferson City. We have to think BIG picture.
