Governor Mike Parson filed President Trump’s candidacy paperwork on Tuesday allowing the President to appear on Missouri Ballots. The Trump campaign and the RNC also announced the Missouri teams for the 2020 cycle.
The Trump campaign team includes thirteen Trump campaign honorary state chairs. The RNC’s Missouri team includes a regional political director.
“Our Missouri Trump Victory leadership team will help to replicate and expand the President’s strong victory in Missouri in 2016, delivering a 2020 win for both the President and GOP candidates up and down the ballot,” said Brad Parscale, Campaign Manager of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. and Ronna McDaniel, Chairwoman of the RNC, in a joint statement. “The people of Missouri spoke loudly when they delivered President Trump a commanding mandate to lead in 2016. After delivering historic economic successes for the men and women of Missouri, our Missouri leadership team will pave the way for another strong victory for President Trump in 2020.”
Since President Trump was elected, he has added 64,500 jobs to Missouri’s economy, adding 9,900 jobs in the manufacturing sector while President Obama lost 10,000 manufacturing jobs in the state. Trump has lowered the state’s unemployment rate from 4.2% to 3.1% after the state hit an unemployment peak of 9.8% under President Obama. Additionally, President Trump has added money back into the paychecks of Missouri voters, with the average Missouri taxpayer receiving a tax cut of $1,402. President Trump has lifted the prospect of voters across Missouri, overseeing a decline of 81,728 Missouri residents on food stamps. Finally, as President Trump lowers prescription drug costs and healthcare premiums, Democrat plans would cause 3,466,700 million Missouri residents to lose their current insurance plans – an unacceptable prospect.
