Jack Danforth forks over $10,000 to Mike Parson for Missouri governor


Former Missouri Sen. Jack Danforth, who backed Tom Schweich for governor and then eulogized him following his death, is supporting state Sen. Mike Parson for governor.

Danforth signaled his intentions with a $10,000 donation earlier this month.

The Missouri Scout first noted the contribution and pointed out that “the amount is less important than the statement.

“Danforth is still the standard-bearer for the old school (more moderate) Republicans, and can provide an entry to the St. Louis GOP money that looks a little nervously at the hot and heavy far-right Republicans,” the Scout said.
