JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Americans for Prosperity has been busy trying to keep U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt from being defeated in November. The group announced Monday that they had contacted more than 700,000 Missouri voters by knocking on doors and phone banking.
They say Blunt’s opponent, Secretary of State Jason Kander, should not be elected because of his support for the Affordable Care Act, energy taxes, and a vote against tax cuts.
“Americans for Prosperity is on a mission to stop Jason Kander from taking more money out of the pockets of hardworking Missourians,” said Jeremy Cady, state director for AFP-MO. “In the past month alone our dedicated team of staff and volunteers have contacted over half a million voters either by phone or at the door to highlight how Kander’s agenda will cost Missouri families more.”
The group also sent out a mailer highlighting Kander’s links to President Barack Obama. It also highlights Kander’s support of the Affordable Care Act, energy taxes and the vote against tax cuts.
“Remember when you had money left at the end of the month?” the mailer reads. “We can’t afford Jason Kander’s agenda.”
The group said they will continue knocking on the doors to keep Kander out of office through the November election.
“Kander has proved he won’t listen to Missourians by voting ten times to protect Obamacare even after we overwhelmingly rejected it at the polls,” Cady said. “Furthermore, his support for energy tax increases and his vote against tax cuts for lower and middle income workers proves he will only make it harder for Missourians to get by.”
