MRP: The Day After

November 5th, 2008 by MarkTwain · No Comments

In a campaign year that witnesses the election of a Democratic president – who just so happens will be the nation’s first African American president – Missouri Republicans can take solace in the fact that they rejected the Kool Aid of nanny state socialism and chose John McCain over Barack Obama yesterday.

The following is a statement by Doug Russell, Chairman of the Missouri Republican Party regarding Missouri’s election results:

Missouri’s performance in the face of a Democrat tidal wave that swept the nation was impressive.  We re-elected our incredible Lt. Governor Peter Kinder.  We were the only target state that Senator McCain won.  We picked up three seats in the state senate and maintained our strong majority in the state house.

Tonight’s victories have proven that when we govern well, stick to our principles and focus on improving people’s lives we can win in any environment.  Missouri Republicans remain committed to doing the people’s work and moving our state forward in a positive direction.  We congratulate all candidates on a hard fought campaign and look forward to working together for the good of Missouri.
