Wallingford to host campaign kickoff event Saturday

Friday, May 18, 2012

Wayne Wallingford
State Rep. Wayne Wallingford will host a kickoff event for his state Senate campaign in Cape Girardeau on Saturday.

Wallingford, a Republican seeking the 27th Senate District seat, will officially kick off his campaign at 2 p.m. at 518 Helena Ave. in Cape Girardeau, just behind the Broadway McDonald's.

The event will also serve as the grand opening of his campaign headquarters.

Wallingford is opposed by fellow Republican Rep. Ellen Brandom of Sikeston in the August primary. No Democrats filed for the seat which represents Cape Girardeau, Scott, Bollinger, Perry, Madison and Wayne County.

Look for coverage of the event Saturday at www.semissourian.com and in Sunday's Southeast Missourian.

Voted for him last time and that will be the last time. When he said "I just got goose bumps thinking about meeting Rush Limbaugh and he deserves being in the hall of famous Missourians". I'm a democrat and i don't think I'm deranged, but evidently Wayne does because he agrees with Rush. I wonder how Wayne would have reacted if that would have been his daughter Rush called a slut and prostitute? I know this is a majority conservative town and county, but that doesn't mean everyone agrees with you Wayne.
