(Leadwood) Primary elections, in Missouri, take place on August 4th and as that day gets closer all candidates are ramping up their campaigns. The Conservative Club of St. Francois County helped out local candidates with a meet in Leadwood Thursday evening. The event gave constituents the opportunity to meet with and talk to the candidates. Club president Chuck Dodson explains the idea behind the meetup.
Ryan Miller is running for St. Francois County Sheriff. He tells us why an event like this helps the campaign trail.
Mike Henderson, who is running for re-election for his 117th district seat in the Missouri House, says an event like this is helpful and it may not have been a reality a few years ago.
The event ran form 6 until 9 at the Leadwood City Park. The Conservative Club can be found on Facebook.
