Kansas City, Mo. (April 30, 2019) – Last evening, Democrats in House District 99 nominated Trish Gunby to be our party nominee for the special election called for November 5, 2019. The Missouri Democratic Party looks forward to a competitive race that will serve as a referendum on the extreme agenda pursued by the GOP supermajority in the legislature.
Missouri Democratic Party Executive Director, Lauren Gepford, released the following statement:
“House District 99 is a suburban St. Louis County district that is trending the wrong way for the Missouri GOP. Trish Gunby’s energetic campaign offers voters a sensible, balanced approach to governing. Trish is not a politician, but is an engaged citizen deeply concerned about what she sees coming out of Jefferson City. We will relentlessly contrast her approach with the out-of-touch political agenda the Republican nominee will support.”
