Former Governor Warren Hearnes and his wife Betty Hearnes, herself the 1988 Democratic nominee for Governor, announced their endorsement of Representative Jeff Harris for Attorney General today.
"During this campaign season we have heard a lot of talk about change," said Betty Hearnes. "One thing Democrats don't want to change is our commitment to our values. Jeff Harris has long been a reliable voice for Democrats and Missouri families. We can count on him to stand up for what's right when he is Attorney General."
"Jeff Harris is the future of the Democratic Party," said Governor Hearnes. "He will bring energy and excitement, along with tremendous experience to the Attorney General's office. We've watched Jeff emerge as a strong leader for the party, and we look forward to seeing him continue serving our state as Attorney General."
Hearnes served as Missouri Governor from 1965 to 1973.
