Southwest Missouri Congressman Billy Long Calls Out Several Candidates in U-S Senate Race

Southwest Missouri Congressman Billy Long is taking shots at some of his opponents in the G-O-P Primary race for U.S. Senate.

At an appearance in Springfield Tuesday, Long accused Attorney General Eric Schmitt of talking a good game, but being too soft on China.

Long says Eric Greitens, former governor of Missouri, is a weak general election candidate and says Greitens was a “pretty unremarkable governor.”

Long also questioned whether Western Missouri Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler is realy conservative.

Long, who is in the process of taking a bus to each county in Missouri as part of his campaign, was joined in Springfield by “Moms For America” President Kimberly Fletcher.

Fletcher threw her support behind Long’s campaign, and announced her organization is moving its national headquarters to southwest Missouri.

“Moms For America” describes itself as a national movement of mothers to reclaim their culture for truth, family, freedom and the Constitution.

Other GOP candidates announcing they’ll run in the August, 2022 primary are St. Louis Attorney Mark McCloskey and Sullivan State Senator Dave Schatz.

The U.S. Senate seat opened up for 2022 after Republican Roy Blunt’s announcement he would not seek re-election.

Congressman Long spoke with reporters following his campaign event at Bass Pro Shops White River Conference Center:
