Yes on Luetkemeyer

October 31, 2014

Via The Missourian

We have said before that U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer reflects the views of a majority of the people he represents in the Third Congressional District. He’s a conservative Republican.

He has been in the U.S. House since 2009. Initially he represented the Ninth District, but it was eliminated after the 2010 census and this area became the Third District. The district generally takes in the northeastern part of Missouri.

Prior to being in the U.S. House, Rep. Luetkemeyer served in the Missouri House from January 1999 to January 2005. He earned a degree in political science, with a minor in business. He’s a lifelong farmer, the fourth generation of his family to own their farm at St. Elizabeth, south of Jefferson City. He also is a banker/insurance agent. He served as Missouri’s tourism director for several years.

His background makes him uniquely qualified to represent us in Congress. His experience as a farmer and businessman, plus serving in public office, gives him a broad view and understanding of the people he represents in Congress, what their needs are, and the conditions they live under. His record in Congress is solidly conservative. He has supported small business interests and those of the farmer.

Voters should return Luetkemeyer to Congress.

National Right to Life to endorse Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer

September 5, 2014

Dear Rep. Luetkemeyer:

National Right to Life is pleased to endorse you for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives.

During the 113th Congress, you have earned a perfect 100% pro-life voting record in the scorecard issued by National Right to Life.

You voted to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1797), legislation to protect unborn children from abortion after 20 weeks, a point by which the unborn child is capable of experiencing great pain when being killed by dismemberment or other late abortion techniques.

You voted for the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (H.R. 7), a bill that would establish a permanent, government-wide policy against funding abortions or health plans that cover abortions.

You voted for H.R. 45, a measure to repeal the Obama healthcare law – a law which provides government funding for insurance plans that pay for abortion on demand, and will lead to the rationing of lifesaving medical treatments.

All voters who are concerned with the right to life and with the protection of the most vulnerable members of the human family should vote to return you to Congress, so that you can continue to work to advance vital pro-life public policies.

Sincerely,

David N. O’Steen, Ph.D.
Executive Director

Douglas Johnson
Legislative Director

Karen Cross
Political Director
