Arnold, MO (KTRS) Senator Roy Blunt is seeking a second term.
The Republican lawmaker officially announced his re-election campaign Friday morning at at Unico-SGI Manufacturing in Arnold, the first of a 10-stop, two-day tour across the state. Blunt’s office says the location was chosen because he helped save the business from what it calls “onerous federal regulations.”
Blunt said too many regulations are hurting the economy, but he is confident America’s better days “are ahead of us.”
The only other Republican in the race is a political newcomer, Christopher Batsche. Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander is seeking the Democratic nomination to oppose Blunt in November.
