The Cass County Democratic Committee held its annual Back to Blue Dinner last night in Belton, Missouri. Several hundred Democrats attended the dinner and heard from a number of statewide office holders and candidates as well as local and district candidates. Attorney General (and 2016 gubernatorial candidate) Chris Koster, State Auditor Nicole Galloway, former Cass County Prosector (and 2016 candidate for Attorney General) Teresa Hensley, Judy Baker, Pat Contreras, Russ Carnahan, Winston Apple, and Ashley Beard-Fosnow addressed the audience. Other candidates in attendance included Gordon Christensen (a candidate in the 4th Congressional District), ElGene Ver Dught (the Democratic Party candidate in the 21st Senate District), and several area state legislative district candidates.

There is a social hour before the dinner where candidates can take the opportunity to visit with old friends and party activists:
