Sikeston Tea Party endorses Bob Parker
SIKESTON, Mo. -- The Sikeston Tea Party has endorsed Texas County rancher Bob Parker in the Republican primary for the 8th Congressional District.
Parker's campaign announced the endorsement in a story submitted Friday on semissourian.com.
The campaign said the Sikeston Tea Party cited Parker's stance as a "true conservative, Christian, pro-life Republican" who "stands for the principles of freedom that America was founded upon."
Parker faces incumbent Jo Ann Emerson in the primary. Parker's campaign has said that Emerson isn't conservative enough for the values held by people in the district.
