  • Dottie Bailey for state rep in District 110

    A classic Tea Party vs. RINO battle is taking place in a safely Republican state representative district in southwest St. Louis County (mostly Eureka and parts of Pacific and Wildwood).

    A great State Rep decides to give up his seat. The seat previously held by the Speaker of the House and a conservative legend.

    My blog includes links to related posts at the bottom of every individual post page. I usually don’t pay much attention, but today I noticed something.
