I’m proud to endorse Trudy Busch Valentine. The reason is simple; whether we like how power works or not, she represents our best hope of restoring honor to Missouri’s place in the United States Senate. The Republican field is utterly lacking honor.

“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 are building a grassroots movement to restore representative democracy, reform capitalism, and invest in our future for Missouri and all Americans. We are working to elect Tim to fight for us.

He will work every day for Missourians at home, not the establishment’s interests.
Our motto as we take on the machine is to, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead.
