MDP Chair Statement on Election of Ed Martin to Lead Missouri Republicans

Kansas City-- Today, Missouri Democratic Party chair Mike Sanders released this statement following the election of extreme politician Ed Martin as chairman of the Missouri Republican Party. 

“While Ed Martin may have finally won an election today, it should be no comfort to Missourians that the most extreme elements of our state’s Republican party are now firmly in control,” said Sanders. “Missourians won’t soon forget Ed Martin’s highly controversial and ethically challenged past, and it’s significant that someone with such an extreme history will now be the voice of Missouri Republicans.”
 
In the coming days, the Missouri Democratic Party will seek to highlight key examples by which Martin’s extreme politics have deviated from the values of mainstream Missourians.
