Mayor Barnes v. Graves/Roe
Mayor Barnes needs our help now. Why get involved early? Well, as we all know from Sen. McCaskill’s campaign, early in-state support and money are essential to getting early national support and money. June is the end of the quarter and people are watching how Mayor Barnes performs. The DCCC and the Democrats in the U.S. House are picking their top races (the KC Star recently reported on a visit by Rep. Van Hollen). This race is one of the few that the D’s can knock off an R, extend our majority in Congress and get enough votes to override Bush’s veto. From a Missouri perspective, Congressman Graves and Jeff Roe have committed themselves to the destruction of democrats in N.W. Missouri and the dismantling of our judicial system. Graves/Roe will do everything in their power to make Missouri a place that elects Republicans via the most nasty-in your face-hostile politics. We in the Missouri Democratic Party stand against this kind of mean-spirited politics. Graves/Roe hate good government and progressive values and will stop at nothing to destroy the basic principles and institutions of our government – but don’t get me started.
