Congratulations to the Next Gentleman From 78th: Bruce Franks, Jr.

brucerallyBruce Franks, Jr. was an amazing candidate and will make an even more amazing state representative.

Bruce won with 76.12%. That is a loud voice for change and a major rejection of the status quo by voters.

Thank you to the voters and volunteers who stepped up to the challenge in yesterday’s 78th District Missouri House Re-Vote.

We need to see that same energy and passion on November 8th for the General Election.

So, take a few days to rest up, and then it’s back to work registering voters, making phone calls, knocking on doors, writing notes to voters, and however else you can contribute to bringing change via the ballot box.
