First, let me say how pleased I am to see SBC leaders like Danny Akin, Ronnie Floyd and Paige Patterson make such a strong public statement about how Christians ought to view certain issues as they vote today. It is a document well worth reading, especially if you have yet to vote.
My executive assistant, Andree, voted at 6:50 a.m. this morning in California. She said the place was packed. When she voted at the same time two years ago, hardly anyone was there. This may say something about turnout in rural Missouri. Pathway staff writer Brian Koonce also reported heavy turnout in western Cole County (western edge of Jefferson City) when he voted at 8 a.m.
I think the GOP will pick up 60+ seats in the house and 8 seats in the Senate. More importantly, a lot of our Christian brothers and sisters are running and have a great chance of winning. I am praying for my St. Louis friend, Ed Martin, to win the 3rd District Congressional seat today. Ed was featured in the latest issue of Human Events.
I am also praying that Congressman Sam Graves, a member of First Baptist Church, Tarkeo, is re-elected and my dear friend, Zel Fischer, also a member of First Tarkeo, is affirmed by voters for a 12-year term on the Missouri Supreme Court.
And of course, I hope Roy Blunt, a member of First Baptist Church, Branson, wins Kit Bond’s Senate seat today as well.
