GOP Establishment Backing Hulshof

In a press release issued today, Congressman Kenny Hulshof's campaign for governor announced that 67 Republican members of the Missouri General Assembly have already endorsed him in his race against Sarah Steelman.  That's a big number this early in the campaign and establishes Hulshof as the party's front runner.

But gaining the support of the GOP establishment is only step on the route to the Governor's mansion in Jefferson City.  If Hulshof wants to win the nomination and to have a chance against Jay Nixon in November, he needs to find a way to appeal to voters, not just insiders.

The sooner he starts making waves, the better off he'll be.
