Kander to Take on Blunt in Missouri Senate Campaign 2016

Missouri’s Democratic Secretary of State Jason Kander will challenge Republican incumbent Roy Blunt in 2016.
“We can’t change Washington if we don’t change the people we send there. I believe it’s time for a new generation of leaders,” Kander said in a video announcement.
Kander is a former Kansas City State Representative.
He was elected Secretary of State in 2012. In making the decision to run for the Senate he is giving up the statewide office.
Within Minutes, Missouri Republicans linked Kander to President Obama.
The Missouri GOP post an image showing his name; replacing the ‘o’ in Jason with the Obama campaign logo
of a sun.
“Jason Kander has already proven himself to be a dyed-in-the-wool liberal in lock-step with the failing Obama Agenda ” said Republicn Chairman Ed Martin.
The head of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DCCC), Jon Tester praised Kander and his decision.
” Jason’s experience serving his country in Afghanistan and as a U.S. Army Captain, and his time in the General Assembly and Secretary of State’s office leaves him well equipped to fight for Missouri’s middle class against Washington D.C.’s powerful special interests”.
