Coonrod, Rep. Norr Back Harris for A.G.


Greene County Presiding Commissioner Dave Coonrod and Rep. Charlie Norr have endorsed Rep. Jeff Harris for Missouri's Attorney General.

Harris is running in a 3-way Democratic primary against Rep. Margaret Donnelly and State Senator Chris Koster.

“Jeff Harris’ strong record as a leader in the House and his ability to appeal to all Missourians, not just those in major metro areas, make him the right choice for Attorney General,” said Coonrod. “Missourians know what they’re getting with a candidate like Jeff Harris, and we know we can trust him to focus on the issues that matter most to Missouri families.”

“Jeff Harris has the experience and the ability to run an Attorney General’s office that will work for all of us,” said Norr. “He is the only candidate who has worked directly with a Democratic Attorney General, and as a leader in the House he has fought tirelessly to address the issues that affect Missourians’ lives.”

“I am honored to have the support of Commissioner Coonrod and Representative Norr,” said Rep. Jeff Harris. “Their endorsements demonstrate the strength that my campaign is building across the state. To win in November, Democrats must nominate a candidate who can win in every corner of Missouri, not just in St. Louis or Kansas City," Harris said.

Also today, the Joplin Building and Construction Trades Council announced they are endorsing Koster for Attorney General. “Chris Koster has a proven track record of supporting the issues and concerns of working men and women,” said Ron Lundien, President of the Joplin Council.

This continues to be another gold star for the Harris Campaign. Throughout the past few months it has been evident that Rep. Harris has broad statewide appeal, which is important in every primary. Not only that, but he continues to receive major labor endorsements. Way to go Jeff, keep up the good work. Good endorsement Mr. Commissioner and Rep. Norr.
