(SPRINGFIELD, Mo.) Sen. Jack Goodman will announce what his campaign is calling a “major endorsement” Thursday morning.
Three firefighter associations, including the Springfield Firefighters Association, Southern MO Professional Firefighters, and MO State Council of Firefighters will all announce their support at a press conference in Springfield.
The associations will highlight at least three specific things.
First, “His dedication and commitment to public safety while serving in Jefferson City.”
Second, they say, “He has sponsored legislation that has allowed firefighters to perform our duties much safer while responding to emergencies.” The group specifically points out the Stop Meth Act, which Goodman cosponsored.
The groups say Goodman, “will be a voice for firefighters in Washington, D.C.” They say, “His actions in Jefferson City show he will do all Missourians proud while working Washington, D.C.”
Goodman is facing a list of 8 compeditors for the GOP nomination. GOP observers say it’s probably down to three candidates – Sen. Jack Goodman, Sen. Gary Nodler, and auctioneer Billy Long.
Last night, through a retweet, Long seemed to announce an endorsement by former State Treasurer Sarah Steelman.
Goodman will be in Carthage Thursday afternoon at a Meet and Greet for supporters at the Central Park on South Garrison at 4:30PM. This event is open to the public.
The endorsement event is at 2350 N. Clifton Ave. Springfield and is open press.
