Missouri Chamber PAC endorses two candidates in the August Special Election

Posted on

The Missouri Chamber Political Action Committee is endorsing Rep. Sandy Crawford and Sara Walsh in their August 8 special election races.

Rep. Sandy Crawford, a Republican from Buffalo, is seeking to join the Missouri Senate in District 28. This seat was previously held by Lt. Governor Mike Parson, who left the Senate following his election to his new office.

Rep. Crawford was first elected to the House of Representatives in 2010 following a 30 year banking career. During her time in office, she has earned a 97 percent vote rating from the Missouri Chamber. She is opposed by Democrat Albert Skalicky in this race.

Senate District 28 includes Sedalia, Lebanon and eight mostly-rural counties in western Missouri.

The Missouri Chamber PAC urges voters in Senate District 28 to vote for Sandy Crawford on August 8.

Voters in House District 50 will also be selecting a new representative following the departure of Rep. Caleb Jones. The Missouri Chamber PAC is endorsing Sara Walsh in what is expected to be a close race.

Walsh, a Republican, works in communications. As a candidate, she has promised to “advocate for business owners and economic development and against bureaucratic regulations.”

Walsh is running against Democrat Michela Skelton.

House District 50 stretches from south Columbia through southern Boone County and includes parts of Cole and Moniteau counties.

Voters in this area are encouraged by the Missouri Chamber PAC to vote for Sara Walsh.
