Tuesday night, Jacob Turk won his fourth straight Republican primary in Missouri’s 5th Congressional District, setting him up for another match-up against Emanuel Cleaver in November.
|Shawd, Ron Paul||GOP||1,539||4%|
In 2010, Cleaver defeated Turk by only nine-points in deep blue Dist. 5 after easy victories in their two previous contests. The 5th District has since been redrawn to include a more rural part of central Missouri.
I am sincerely grateful for all who worked on this campaign. They deserve a big round of applause and a hearty thanks for their efforts that achieved the resounding primary victory today. Tonight we celebrate. Tomorrow we turn to the task of winning in November.
Go get ‘em, Jake.
