Hulshof Rolls Out 67 Endorsements from Lawmakers

Republican candidate for Governor Kenny Hulshof rolled out 67 legislative endorsements today -- a list that includes several Ozarks lawmakers.

Rep. Charlie Denison, Rep. Bob Dixon, Rep. Don Ruzicka, Sen. Delbert Scott, Rep. Shane Schoeller, Rep. Jim Viebrock, Rep. Jay Wasson, Rep. Ray Weter, Rep. Dennis Wood are all included on the list.

“I am glad that so many elected officials share the goal of making state government more effective and efficient,” Hulshof said in a statement. “I am humbled by the outpouring of support from those in Jefferson City and across the state. The General Assembly has worked hard to implement positive reforms, and I am proud to have the confidence of so many of its members," he added.

In an interview several months ago, Sen. Norma Champion told the KY3 Political Notebook she would most likely not endorse in the primary. It's unclear if that will change.

The Hulshof campaign said its endorsement list includes 65% of the Republican delegation in the Missouri House.
