Missouri Democratic Party statement on Governor Parson’s Campaign Announcement

Kansas City, Mo. (Sept 8, 2019)

Following Governor Parson’s campaign launch today, Missouri Democratic Party Chair Jean Peters Baker released the following statement:

“Governor Parson has simply not delivered for working families struggling with the cost of everything from health care to child care to housing. Instead of demonstrating leadership on our most urgent and immediate challenges, the Governor signed the nation’s most extreme law to limit womens’ reproductive health choices and he just called legislators back to Jefferson City to – of all things – work out a deal for car dealers while Missourians are suffering from an epidemic of gun violence. His agenda is not an agenda for Missouri families. Missouri Democrats look forward to making the case for change.”
