U.S. Representative Jo Ann Emerson joined by local GOP officials and candidates for office cut a ribbon dedicating the new Cape Girardeau County Republican Central Committee headquarters at 612 Broadway in downtown Cape Girardeau.
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- With the election a little over two months away, members of the Cape Girardeau Republican Central Committee hosted more than 140 people for barbecue and refreshments on Sunday to dedicate the Committee's headquarters located in the heart of downtown Cape Girardeau.

"In just a few short months the people of Cape Girardeau will have the chance to send a clear message to the liberal establishment -- we've had enough," said Evan Trump, Chairman of the Cape Girardeau Republican Central Committee. "As the campaign season kicks into high gear, we are honored to welcome so many members of the public and our outstanding Republican candidates for local and federal office to our headquarters."

Candidates for federal and local office including U.S. Representative Jo Ann Emerson, State Representatives Billy Pat Wright and Ellen Brandom of the 159th and 160th Districts, State Representative Clint Tracy, candidate for Cape Girardeau County Presiding Commissioner, Cape Girardeau County Auditor Pete Frazier, Scott Clark, candidate for Cape Girardeau County Recorder of Deeds, as well as Lloyd Smith, Executive Director of the Missouri Republican Party all attended.

Emerson, who offered keynote remarks, stressed the need to return a conservative majority to Washington who could help her "fire Nancy Pelosi."

"With your help, we can put an end to the disastrous Obama-Pelosi policies and get our economy growing again," said Emerson. "The higher taxes and onerous regulations like we saw in the healthcare takeover are stifling innovation. We don't need bigger government; we need government to get out of the way."

The headquarters will officially open on Tuesday, September 14 and those interested in getting involved should contact Evan Trump at 573.576.4553.

northside8:

You are the one who said JoAnn Emerson voted against Medicare Part D. I never did see your admission you were wrong. She voted for it, period. She voted for everything you supposededly conservatives are against. How can you go into the voting booth and cast for someone like that? You should look at Larry Bill or Rick Vandeven.

uhhh howdy, Liberal blog says Emerson was a "NO" vote. much to the chagrin of her own leadership I might add. Jo Ann is a real leader.

Yawn. Who cares? Sowers has a 0% chance of winning this race. It's comical really. I don't think the lower to middle class citizens working paycheck to paycheck got the memo that the GOP really isn't the party working for them. I'd gladly vote for the GOP, but I don't make enough to benefit from any of their policies. As long as they spew their social agenda, though, the sheep will vote them in around here. Who cares about economic policy...rich getting richer. Good job SEMO.

It is great to see a great candidate, such as Scott Clark. He is an awesome selection for the local GOPs. It is definitely time to get a respectable and loyal Recorder of Deeds for Cape Girardeau County. It is time for a change in the Recorder of Deeds office. I met Scott Clark at the SEMO Fair. He was extremely friendly and courteous to me and my family. Clark will have my vote and my family's vote in the upcoming election.

VOTE SCOTT CLARK FOR RECORDER OF DEEDS
