Former MO GOP Congressman Backs Democrat in U.S. Senate Race; Calls Schmitt “Too Extreme”

(MISSOURINET) –  Former Republican Congressman Tom Coleman has come out in favor of Democrat Trudy Busch Valentine for United States Senate and flatly against the candidacy of Republican Eric Schmitt. He calls Schmitt too extreme. Coleman, who served the 6th Congressional District for eight terms, claims Busch Valentine is more in line with most Missourians in her support of abortion rights.

Schmitt has received endorsements from some conservative groups, like the Missouri Farm Bureau and the Tea Party Express.
