In Her Own Words

 "People in suburban St. Louis are tired of business as usual in Washington. While special interest groups and Washington lobbyists are getting richer and gaining more influence, hard-working families in our community are being ignored and left behind. It’s time we had a representative who will put our families first and is not afraid to stand up to corruption, lobbyists and special interest groups." 1

"We are trying to become one more state that says we will not support economic policies that undermine our Democratic friend and ally, Israel." 2
