Show-Me Republican Candidates FINALLY Ready To Denounce Eric Greitens

Apropos for #TBT . . .

Remember when the GOP didn't REALLY speak out against nasty allegations target the former Guv who resigned in disgrace.

Now . . .


Time may not heal all wounds, but in politics it's often good for a laugh.

National Republicans have worried that if Greitens wins the nomination, he'd put the seat at risk in a general election.

Greitens claimed he'd been exonerated from the 2018 investigation.

Greitens also described Tuesday as a "joyous" day, saying "God hands you pain that you don't want, and there's wisdom on the other side."

But his Republican primary competitors are already trading jabs and casting doubt.

"It’s not conservative if you tie a woman up in your basement and assault her and to bring shame and disgrace on our state, and he did," said U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler, now running for the open Senate seat. "Missouri deserves better."
