From His Hometown, Gov. Parson Announces Bid For Second Term

Missouri Governor Mike Parson formally announced Sunday he’s running for a second term as the state's chief executive. This will be the first time he campaigns for that office because he ascended to the post after former governor Eric Greitens resigned last year amid scandal.

In his hometown of Bolivar, Parson officially announced his bid for the 2020 gubernatorial spot in front of a crowd of supporters who had gathered in the local high school.

“We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to pursue the American dream. If they are willing to work, that dream should never be out of reach for anyone, regardless of what their background is or where they come from. That’s why I feel the call to serve again,” Parson said.

Parson said if elected, he plans to boost the manufacturing sector, create policies to attract more jobs, and ensure that all Missourians have equal opportunity in education and training.

1. Good luck getting rid of him.

I expect that Nicole Galloway will prove to be a formidable adversary.
