Democratic attorney will challenge U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler in Missouri's 4th District

JEFFERSON CITY -- Democrat Lindsey Simmons, a 32-year-old attorney from Hallsville, is challenging Republican U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler for Missouriís 4th Congressional District seat.

Simmons, a seventh-generation Missourian who grew up in Saline County before graduating from Harvard Law School, has never before sought public office. She has worked for several high profile Democrats from Missouri, including former Sen. Claire McCaskill, former Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster and former Rep. Ike Skelton, Hartzlerís Democratic predecessor in the 4th District.

She is married to an Apache helicopter pilot in the U.S. Army and has a 17-month-old son named Jace.

While Simmons acknowledges defeating a five-term incumbent will be an uphill fight, she said she is ready to take on that challenge.
