Missouri Governor's Race - Treasurer Sarah Steelman & Rep. Kenny Hulshof

Rep. Kenny Hulshof and Treasurer Sarah Steelman prepare for debates this July.

“Open debates are a fundamental tool in our political system. They provide one of the best ways for voters to gain an understanding of each candidate’s values and priorities,” Hulshof said in a statement. “I look forward to debating the issues that matter most to Missourians.”
