Missouri House Candidates Spar in Key Congressional District

Candidates in one of the nation’s most closely watched congressional races have used a joint virtual forum appearance to push back against attack ads in the bitterly fought campaign.

Schupp says that contrary to Wagner ads, she does not support defunding the police. Wagner defended herself against Schupp's attack ads, contending she has consistently supported maintaining health care coverage for preexisting conditions.
