Warrensburg – Cass County Prosecutor Teresa Hensley, 53, D-Raymore, seeks to unseat first-term U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler in the 4th Congressional District race.

Hensley holds a law degree.

“I’m tired of seeing the same thing out of Washington, D.C. – politicians fighting amongst themselves rather than working together for the middle class,” Hensley said.

Hensley gave her reason for seeking the office.

“I’ve said all along that my goal is to go to Washington and do the things that politicians like Congresswoman Hartzler should have been doing all along. That means putting aside the partisan bickering and getting down to the business of creating jobs and getting our economy moving faster…”

….Hartzler’s campaign declined to participate in answering the survey….

[emphasis added]

There are a number of questions on various topics, from the economy, to the federal budget, to social issues, to health care, to eduction. In their story, after every question, the newspaper reported Representative Vicky Hartzler’s (r) response:

No answer given.

Yep, that’s the republican agenda for the country.
