Texas will hold in Kansas City.
In making his public endorsement, Rep. Curtman issued the following
“Missouri is a prolife state, and if we handle the abortion issue at
the state level like Ron Paul says, then we could end the practice
abortion in Missouri.
“Political office is reserved as a position of service, not a

personal freedom and sound financial principles. Blind

spending his first year, and he has consistently fought for
personal freedom throughout his time in Congress.”
