ROY BLUNT OVERWHELMINGLY WINS STATE FAIR STRAW POLL
(Columbia, Mo)--The results of the Missouri State Fair Straw Poll are in, and Roy Blunt overwhelmingly defeated Jason Kander in the annual poll of fair attendees. Of the 5,198 votes cast, Blunt received 63 percent to Kander's 37 percent.
"My mom and dad were dairy farmers, and I grew up surrounded by the common sense and values of rural Missouri," Blunt said. "Those common sense values are under assault by out-of-control federal bureaucrats, who think they should regulate every drop of water on our farms, every hour our kids help out in the barn, and every ounce of pesticide we have historically used. We are fighting back, and I'm so glad to have the help and support of so many Missourians in our efforts."
"Whether it's onerous EPA regulations or the continued assault on gun rights, rural Missourians know that Jason Kander doesn't stand with them," said Tate O'Connor, press secretary.
