SE Mo St. Rep. Enters Mo-8 GOP Race to Replace Emerson

Southeast Missourian:

A Missouri House leader was in Southeast Missouri on Thursday making pitches to some of the approximately 80 people who will vote to select the Republican nominee to replace Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, on the heels of reports that Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder also is seeking the nomination.
Rep. Jason Smith, R-Salem, said he was on the road in the 8th Congressional District visiting members of Republican 8th Congressional District Committee to make his case for the nomination. Political party committees made up of county and legislative district committee members soon will cast votes to determine their parties’ nominees.
Smith, the House Speaker Pro Tem for the upcoming legislative session, estimated he has met with 80 percent of the GOP committee members who will vote for the nomination during an upcoming meeting. A date hasn’t been announced, but two public forums are scheduled this month.
