RGA Statement On Missouri Gubernatorial Primary Results

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Republican Governors Association (RGA) released the following statements on the results of the Missouri gubernatorial primary:

“The RGA congratulates Governor Mike Parson on securing the Republican nomination to keep working for Missouri. Governor Parson has expanded opportunity for citizens of the Show Me State through his historic commitment to workforce development, landmark licensing reforms to break down barriers to success, bold plan to curtail violent crime, and balanced approach to get Missourians back to work and children safely back to school,” said RGA Chairman Governor Greg Abbott. “As a veteran, former sheriff and small business owner, Governor Parson has witnessed firsthand the everyday challenges Missourians face. The RGA is proud to stand behind Governor Parson as he continues to provide game-changing conservative leadership for the people of Missouri.”

“Liberal Democrat Nicole Galloway has made it clear that she would force her high-tax, big government agenda on Missouri families and small businesses. Her campaign is being bankrolled by some of the most radical liberals in the country like Elizabeth Warren and Stacey Abrams, and Galloway’s closest political allies support the dangerous movement to defund the police,” said RGA Executive Director Dave Rexrode. “From playing politics with the coronavirus pandemic and using the State Auditor’s office for personal political gain, to paling around with anti-law enforcement activists whose policies threaten communities across the Show Me State, Galloway simply cannot be trusted to put Missouri working families first.”
