We’re covering the Jackson County Democratic Committee’s annual Truman Days celebration at the Holiday Inn Coco Key in Kansas City this weekend. On Friday night it’s an opportunity for candidates, their supporters, and activists to meet each other and talk about their campaigns and the political landscape in Missouri.

Winston Apple, a Democratic Party candidate in the 29th Legislative District.

Patty Johnson, the Democratic Party candidate in the 56th Legislative District.

Understandably there’s a strong presence from organized labor at Truman Days.

Getting a living wage is not a zero sum game.

Bill Hedge, a Democratic Party candidate in the 6th Congressional District.
