Why do we need candidates for office? Because the leadership to support and defend the Constitution, apparently needs to come from the people… from you and I. We invite you to be a candidate, and participate in our vetting process, particularly for a seat in the state legislature, because it is within the power of the states to reign in the federal government. If it’s not you, then who among your friends, family or neighbors would you trust to support your rights to life, liberty, and property? Recruit them. Tell them about the TEETH of the Constitution and how we can take back the Republic.
Here's something you might find interesting. During the 2020 General Election, 81 seats in the Missouri State Legislature went uncontested. In the House that means 48 Republicans and 29 Democrats ran without opposition and in the Senate, it was 1 Democrat and 3 Republicans. Here’s a map showing the situation for the Missouri House. Currently there are seven Missouri House seats which are currently vacant, and these citizens are without representation. These are Districts 34, 61, 65, 108, 114 and 147. Are you in one of these? Normally the Governor calls for a special election for vacant seats, but maybe that won’t happen in an election year. In the meantime, let’s get ready!
Paul Venable, the state Constitution Party chairman will be there for the initial filing day. We need your help to ADVANCE the Cause of Liberty!
