Democrat US Senator Claire McCaskill is proud that the National Border Patrol Council (the Border Patrol union) endorsed her over Republican Josh Hawley. The Border Patrol is part of the same Orwellian Government bureaucracy that is locking up children on the border and demanding to see the papers of Hispanic-looking people on public transportation around the country. The Council’s endorsement states: “In 2018, we endorsed Donald Trump for president because he was tough on borders and strong on enforcement. We’re endorsing Claire McCaskill now for the exact same reasons.” Part of the Council's endorsement of Trump included this gem: "Mr. Trump is correct when he says immigration wouldn’t be at the forefront of this presidential campaign if months ago he hadn’t made some bold and necessary statements. And when the withering media storm ensued he did not back down one iota." Yes, the Council was referring to Trump’s racist campaign kick-off speech calling Latino immigrants rapists.
After a year of our Platform Committee's hard work, the membership at the August 2018 State Convention voted in six remaining planks to our State Platform! All party members had the opportunity to be involved throughout the process by joining Platform sub-committees, sending feedback on draft planks, participating in local chapter feedback on draft planks, and finally during the discussion& voting at the convention. We appreciate every one of you who put work into this project, especially the many committee members! Huge thanks to Don Fitz for leading this effort through to the end and ensuring that we came out of the 2018 convention with a full Platform!
Freedom of the press is one of the keystones of American democracy, but how can we have a democracy when the press fails to lend a voice to ALL qualified participants in these midterm elections?

Tuesday August 7th is a historic day because it is the first primary election ever for our party! Before we achieved statewide ballot access in 2016, we didn’t have primaries. This year, we also have our first ever primary race for US Senate between our members Jerome Bauer and Jo Crain! And in Jackson County, endorsed Green Party member Nathan Kline is fending off a challenge from a non-member to be our party’s County Executive candidate. So it’s very important for you to participate in the primary and help make these crucial decisions for our party. Be sure to ask for a Green Party Ballot! (The ballot may not be colored Green).
Also, turn out to Vote NO on Prop A! Right to Work is wrong for our state and is aimed at weakening labor unions and the working class!
Our candidates for US Senate Jerome Bauer & Jo Crain, as well as Don Fitz for State Auditor will be appearing at three town halls July 29-30th along with local candidates at each stop. Come ask them questions and hear how electing Green Party candidates will change politics!
At the July General Meeting the KC Heart of American Green Party voted to endorse the following statement about the importance of a NO vote on Proposition A in the August 7th election:
