The University of Central Missouri homecoming parade took place this morning in Warrensburg. As usual, during an election year, there were a significant number of candidates and their supporters in the parade.
Courtney Cole, the Democratic candidate in the 121st Legislative District at the early morning parade lineup.
Blunt (r-lobbyists) supporters at the parade lineup.
Two freight trains came through town on the parade route – slowing the progress of the parade down while everyone waited for them to pass.
Courtney Cole (D), working the parade crowd.
Denny Hoskins (r – noun, verb, CPA) waving to the crowd and getting a mixed response.
Congressman Ike Skelton (D).
Vicky Hartzler (r), the republican challenger in the 4th Congressional District. She said, “I hope I didn’t break your camera.” I kid you not.
The republican candidates didn’t work the crowd (shaking hands and talking to folks). Some of the Democratic candidates did, others just waved to the crowd.
