Hartzler announces she's running for Senate

U.S. Representative Vicky Hartzler is running for Senate.  She announced her candidacy for Roy Blunt’s seat in Lee’s Summit this morning. 

Hartzler represents Missouri’s 4th Congressional district, which covers a largely rural part of Western Missouri, including Columbia and Sedalia. 

She’s a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump and says she’s the candidate that can make sure the seat stays in conservative hands. 

Republican Attorney General Eric Schmitt, former Governor Eric Greitens and attorney Mark McCloskey have all announced their candidacy.

Democratic candidates include former state Senator Scott Sifton, activist Timothy Shepard and marine Lucas Kunce.
