Missouri Governor Parson endorses AG Schmidt for Kansas Governor

TOPEKA – (July 13, 2022) – Missouri Governor Mike Parson has endorsed Attorney General Derek Schmidt in the race for Governor of Kansas.

The endorsement was announced today by the Schmidt campaign. Governor Parson offered the following statement with the endorsement:

“Throughout the pandemic and beyond, I’ve led Missouri with a steady hand, trusting our citizens to make their own decisions and empowering Missouri families, schools, and small businesses to weather the storm and come out better on the other end. I’ve tried to alleviate the pain of inflation, not put forth the same policies that got us here. And I proudly Back the Blue.

“Sadly, Kansas can’t say the same under Laura Kelly’s leadership. Thankfully, in November Kansas has the chance to make a change. Derek Schmidt is a fifth-generation Southeast Kansan who shares your values and who – most importantly – listens to you. He will stand up to Joe Biden, not stand by silently as Biden wrecks our country. He will put forth real solutions to help your family recover from Biden and Kelly’s disastrous economy. He’s got my full support, and I encourage all Kansans to vote for Derek this fall.”
