(SPRINGFIELD, Mo.) Congressional candidate Mike Moon made an unusual case for himself Saturday on Facebook.

Channeling voters who are considering either Moon or Goodman, Moon said, “Jack is doing a good job in Missouri. Let’s keep him here and elect Mike Moon to represent Missouri’s 7th district!”

Moon called out seven reasons.  The first three were complimentary.

Moon said, “[1] Jack’s leadership in the Senate is strengthening and growing. Jack is only 37 and can continue to serve in the MO Senate for several years.” “[2] Jack’s vacancy cannot be easily filled by the state Representatives who would compete with each other to take his 29th Senate District seat.” “[3] Jack’s tactics to bring both House and Senate together for key bills is good for Missouri and provides a mentoring to less experienced legislators who need Jack’s inclusive style.”

Moon’s fourth reason brings in Senator Goodman’s family. “Jack’s lack of enthusiasm has already said he does not plan on taking his young family and tender-aged sons to W., D.C to be infected by Potomac poisons (a family separation is risky business).” Moon says, “Let’s keep Jack inoculated and with his family in Missouri.”

Moon’s last point says nothing specifically about Goodman, yet in context, portrays Goodman as the lesser of the two when it comes to family values issues that hit home with conservative southwest Missouri voters.

Moon says he’s “the only Congressional candidate who has declared his faith in the LORD without apology.” He said the declaration was “in such a compelling manner that at least two that we can document have been redeemed/restored as a direct result of [my] bold stance as a Believer!”

Goodman, who’s said all along he’s doing this for his family, said Saturday night to voters in Springfield, “I want to tell you why laura and I are in this race. We are the greatful beneficiaries of what I believe was a gift from God.” “They built for us a system of governemnet where we get to send our spokesperson to present our values.” Goodman said he’s trying to “save this experiment” for his “children’s futures.”

Moon and Goodman are up against 6 other republicans for the GOP nomination for the 7th District congressional seat. Polls open Tuesday morning.
