ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — Former U.S. Senator Christopher (Kit) Bond likes Ed Martin’s plan to build a platform for smaller and less intrusive government, according to a news release out Thursday.
“The onslaught of regulations coming down the pike from unelected bureaucrats in Washington threatens Missourians’ jobs and pocketbooks,” Senator Bond said. “Ed’s new task force will give Missourians a platform to attack this dramatic intrusion of government in how we live and help ensure the government is working for the people, not the other way around.”
Ed Martin is seeking to be Missouri’s next Attorney General.
Martin says if he is elected, he will form a task force that will carefully review federal, state and local laws and regulations and monitor the regulators to make sure that they do not exceed their proper authority or role under the law.
Martin is running against Livingston County Prosecutor Adam Warren on the Republican side. Democratic Attorney General Chris Koster is also seeking re-election.
