Brandom to host campaign open house Saturday
Wednesday, May 30, 2012
Rep. Ellen Brandom's candidacy for Missouri Senate will kick off in earnest on Saturday when she opens her campaign headquarters in Cape Girardeau and hosts an open house. The grand opening at 1621 Independence St. will include a meet-and-greet luncheon to be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Brandom of Sikeston will face fellow Republican Rep. Wayne Wallingford of Cape Girardeau in the August 7 primary for Missouri's 27th District. No Democrats have filed, meaning the winner in August will automatically claim the seat.
Brandom touts herself a conservative, pro-life candidate who has served the Sikeston-area 160th House district for six years. For 32 years, she and her husband owned and operated Hutter Oil Co.
In a news release, Brandom called Saturday's open house a "great opportunity for me to listen to the concerns of the people and to share my vision on how we can move the area forward."
