Galloway Officially Launches Campaign for Governor
 
Coming off of a strong win in 2018, Nicole Galloway has officially announced her run for Governor.  Bringing the Auditor's mentality of protecting taxpayer money and holding people accountable to the race, Galloway is ready to take on Governor Mike Parson and his dark money in what could be one of the most contested races in the country.  Check out her video here: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/blu_gall_q3_donate?refcode=BLU-GALL-20190812-1-EM&recurring=true&amount=25
 
 
One Year Anniversary of Defeating Right to Work
 
We celebrated the one year anniversary of Missourians telling the GOP that Right to Work is wrong for Missouri by having Missourians sign an anniversary card for Gov. Parson. Parson has said he does not believe that Right to Work is settled. Sign on to tell Gov. Parson and the Missouri GOP to respect our votes.
