Cruz supporters needed at County Caucuses this Saturday - April 9!
Saturday is caucus day in Missouri to select the first round of delegates to ultimately go to Cleveland.

The first vote in 5 of the Congressional districts are pledged to Trump and in the other 3 to Cruz. HOWEVER, on the second ballot should those delegates at the Congressional District Caucuses on April 30 and the State Convention on May 20-21 in Branson be Cruz supporters, and we do this across the nation, Ted Cruz can win the nomination on the second ballot.

Attend the local Caucus in your local county/township. Go to the State Republican Party web site (https://www.missouri.gop/election-2016/#find) to find location, arrive an hour early, and seek to identify the Cruz supporters. Even better, take all your Cruz friends and family with you and be a delegate to the Congressional Caucus and the State Convention. Whoever has the most numbers and elects their slate will prevail.
Statement from Sen. Blunt on Supreme Court Nominee
Missouri Right to Life supports Sen. Blunt's position to not vote on any U.S. Supreme Court nominee until after the Presidential election in November. We are very grateful to his strong support for pro-life efforts to restore the sanctity of life to all innocent and vulnerable people.
 
Please see Senator Blunt's statement below.

"I want to thank Missouri Right to Life and National Right to Life for standing with me in opposition to the confirmation of President Obama's nomination to the Supreme Court.  On Wednesday this week, I made clear that I will not be meeting with the nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, because he shouldn't be confirmed.

"This is a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land. My view is that we are too close to a historic election to confirm this nomination, and the American people should have a say.  So many of the issues you and I care about hang in the balance...read full statement.
