    the Democrats have another candidate as State Rep Steve Hodges has "submitted his name for consideration". He joins State Rep Linda Black, Todd Mahn and Jack Rushin in the field. The Dems will pick their candidate on Saturday in Poplar Bluff.

    Quote from Hodges on Republican nominee Jason Smith:

    “I worked with him before and I have a lot of respect for him," Hodges said. "The pitch that I’m going to make is to sell myself and my knowledge of the area that I would hope to represent. I’m 64 years old… he’s 32. Now just because he’s young doesn’t mean he’s not capable. But, I’ve had business experience. I’ve had lots of experience. And that’s what life’s about – having experiences and learning from them.”

    “I wouldn’t dare say ‘he’s a kid and he doesn’t deserve it.' That’s not true," he added. "But a lot times, I think a big source of knowledge is having patience and being able to listen."

    The Republican Party isn't a party of small government, it's a party of a government for the few. @bhindepmo
