Jason Kander for Missouri Secretary of State
Arguable, it's more important for a political party to control the Secretary of State's office than it is the Governor's office.
The reason George W. Bush was elected President in 2004 was because Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell engaged in truly egregious voter suppression.
After 8 years, Robin Carnahan is leaving her position as MO Secretary of State and Jason Kander won the primary to succeed her.
As a Missouri Democrat I'm thrilled that we have Jason in our party and seeking state-wide office. Jason was in college on September 11th, 2001, and joined the Army Reserve in response. He served in an army infantry unit before receiving his commission and being promoted to Military Intelligence. In 2006 Jason volunteered to deploy to Afghanistan. When he came home he knocked on 20,000 doors running successfully to become a Missouri State Representative.
I can't say enough good things about Jason. Please consider helping his campaign with a donation. No amount is too small. If can't spare any money, visit his sight and sign up as a supporter. You can visit his website here.
