The only reason Ms. Emerson is in the House to begin with is because her husband (who held the seat for years) died from cancer while in office back in 1996. I’m amazed that one of their children isn’t running for the seat.

I’m a native of the Bootheel, and while I was never particularly impressed with the Emersons, they were an improvement over the Dim (Bill Burlison) who held that seat previously. Better yet, if the GOP plays its cards correctly, we could get Sarah Steelman as a replacement. Sarah should have been the Senate nominee last year; instead, Missourians are stuck with Claire McCaskill for at least six more years.

The Emerson Bridge is quite a structure. Been across but twice.
