CANTON, Mo. (WGEM) – U.S. Congressman Sam Graves made a campaign stop in northeast Missouri Tuesday.
He spoke with students and the public at Culver-Stockton College during a town hall meeting. The republican is running for re-election in the race for the House of Representatives for Missouri District Six. He touched on a number of issues and encouraged students to get out and vote in November.
“It’s vitally important that they do participate,” Graves said. “If they don’t participate, then the system completely breaks down. For no other reason, and this is what I told students, no other reason than the legacy that President is going to leave behind and that is the Supreme Court Justices they will appoint.”
“Being able to have the public servants come here and tell you about the business that is going on in Washington right now,” C-SC junior Ben Hooker said. “Keeping everyone who may not follow politics as closely as I do or someone else being able to stay up to date on the happenings. I think it’s a great opportunity for anyone.”
Graves faces democrat David Blackwell and Libertarian Russ Monchil in the November election.
