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.
