Missouri GOP Senate Debate Canceled After Two Campaigns Duck Out


A debate scheduled on July 11th for candidates in the Missouri Senate race has been canceled after two candidates ducked out of the event.

Debate moderators Real America’s Voice’s Dr. Gina Loudon and The Gateway Pundit Editor Jim Hoft reached out to the top four viable candidates according to recent public polling to participate including former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler, Attorney General Eric Schmitt, and Congressman Billy Long.

Two candidates declined this opportunity to share their message with Missouri voters.

It is unfortunate that the candidates are missing this opportunity to reach the wide audience this debate would have provided.  The Gateway Pundit had over 82 million readers in the first quarter of the year and reaches more readers than any Missouri and Midwest outlets.

The Gateway Pundit- 82.7M online visits in Q1
St. Louis Post Dispatch- 14.7M online visits in Q1
St. Louis Business Journal- 32.4M online visits in Q1
PBS KETC 9-137,700 online visits in Q1

The Gateway Pundit will continue to monitor this race and provide interviews with the candidates where possible.

Please stay tuned for additional information.
