House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will not stop with her efforts to keep House control, and a Republican Governor, Mike Parson of Missouri, is giving in to her persistence and joining her team.
“Missouri Gov. Mike Parson signaled his preparation to cave to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s effort to retain control of the House amid statewide redistricting,” reports Breitbart News.
“Parson’s communications director, Kelli Jones, tweeted a threatening message to the Republican-controlled legislature that is internally debating whether to give Pelosi an extra House district to flaunt in the midterms,” reported Breitbart News.
“Establishment state Republican senators have filibustered the GOP favorable maps since Tuesday,” reported Breitbart News.
“Once again, it is the Missouri Senate’s women who restore common sense. It’s about time we stop tip toeing around a few men’s fragile egos,” Jones tweeted
Jones’ tweet was in support of Senator Sandy Crawford’s desire to block her party from favorably drawing redistricted maps.
“Republicans have proposed drawing a 7-1 favorable map for the GOP, while establishment Republicans would prefer to draw favorable 6-2 maps that would benefit Democrats. Crawford’s excuse for blocking her fellow Republicans is that the 7-1 map would hurt rural communities,” reported Breitbart News.
“Voting for a 7-1 map doesn’t get you to heaven,” Crawford said.
Now Sen. Sandy Crawford is on the floor. She said she got an email saying she'd go to hell for not voting for a 7-1 map. "Voting for a 7-1 map doesn't get you to heaven."
She said Republicans are talking about strong 6-2 maps, not a 7-1 that would hurt rural communities. #moleg
