Statement from Democratic Candidate Tim Shepard on Governor Jay Nixon’s announcement not to run.
Following Governor Jay Nixon’s announcement not to run for U.S. Senate in 2022, Tim Shepard released the following statement.
“Governor Nixon did his best job in his tenure as Missouri’s governor, and we welcome his decision not to run in light of his missteps with his reaction to Ferguson, MO. We must have the strongest possible candidate for the 2022 Senate race. I’m confident that our message of a Missouri UnCompromised as well as my candidacy as the only candidate in the race with receipts that I can’t be bought by dark money is exactly what Missourians are looking for in their elected representatives.”
