Democratic Insider
August 21, 2023


Every single Democrat we elect is one more leader working to push Missouri in the right direction. And as the GOP continues their all-out assault on our fundamental freedoms, nothing could be more important than putting an end to their dangerous agenda.   We have a lot of organizing to do ahead of our races in 2024. We need to knock on every possible door and connect with voters across our state, to remind them of the choice for progress they can make when they enter the voting booth. Thank you for your support, and we invite you to join the Missouri Democratic Party as we set in motion to help candidates win in Missouri.


Become a Missouri Democratic Party Member today! 

We need you to invest in our Party! With your support we can build our county parties, foster relationships with community organizations, support our legislators in Jefferson City as they fight for us, and provide candidates with training and resources. Click here to join!  For more information, email


Can you believe Josh Hawley was in Missouri

He attended the Governor’s Ham Breakfast Josh Hawley came back to Missouri to participate in the Governor’s Ham Breakfast at the Missouri State Fair. In taking questions, Hawley said he would “defer to the voters” and says voters should have the opportunity to vote on abortion. He also said he’s not sure if it would pass in Missouri.  But in 2022, Hawley said he hopes the issue will make Missouri more red, pushing Democrats out.

There’s a sentence in a lawsuit filed in St. Louis two years ago that says a lot about indictments issued this week in Georgia against former President Donald Trump and 18 of his alleged co-conspirators. “The intentional dissemination of known falsehoods aimed at sowing doubt about the integrity of our elections threatens our very ability to function as a democracy.” That sentence is in the petition filed by St. Louis law firm Dowd Bennett on behalf of two Georgia election workers, Ruby Freeman and Wandrea “Shaye” Moss, over lies told about them by The Gateway Pundit. The online propaganda rag was founded by St. Louisan Jim Hoft and his twin brother, Joe, who lives in Florida. Read more at the STL Post Dispatch
