Washington, D.C. – Today, National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Rick Scott released the following statement regarding Missouri Senator Roy Blunt’s decision not to seek reelection for the Senate in 2022:
“Roy Blunt has dedicated his career to making Missouri a better place to raise a family, start a business and achieve the American dream. Rising to leadership ranks in both the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate, Senator Blunt has always proven himself as a lawmaker who is unafraid of rolling up his sleeves to get work done for Missourians and all Americans. From historic tax cuts to historic medical research, Missourians knew their senator was always working for them. Senator Blunt’s steady hand and wise counsel will be greatly missed in the Senate.
“The NRSC will work tirelessly to ensure Senator Blunt’s successor will uphold his legacy of free enterprise and small government and we will hold this seat. Any candidate who supports the Democrats’ socialist, big government agenda will struggle to find votes in Missouri, a state that Donald Trump won four months ago by more than 15 points.”
