Confirmed! Ashcroft To Endorse Blunt

Former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft will endorse Roy Blunt in his quest for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Senator Kit Bond.

Chad Livengood, political reporter for the SN-L, confirmed on his twitter page what was first reported on the Bus this afternoon.

Randy Turner, teacher, band member, author and blog writer who writes the Turner Report fleshes out the story.

Robin Carnahan, the daughter of the late Governor of Missouri and Senate candidate Mel Carnahan, is the front running Democrat for the seat. In a bizarre twist, the incumbent Ashcroft lost his senate seat to Carnahan who was killed in a plane crash about three weeks before the election. Missouri Governor Roger Wilson appointed Carnahan's widow and Robin's mother, Jean, to fill the seat. She lost to Jim Talent who lost to Claire Mcaskill, who is, along with Kit Bond, a Missouri senator.

Blunt's endorsements appear to be designed to send a clear message to his possible opponents, Sarah Steelman and Chuck Purgason, to back out and let him have his rein.

Ok, enough of this politics stuff, I got stuff to do for I am a busy man! 2Dlake~

Nice detective job Bus. The Sheriff's Department could use a few folks like you. Seems like all they do is speed traps.
