Big Win for Medicaid Expansions and Primary Candidates

When all votes are final, this shows what a 6 point victory looks like by county
Medicaid Expansion Passes!


After years of Republican inaction and millions of dollars lost, Missouri voters approved Medicaid expansion yesterday once again showing how citizens will take matters into their own hands when elected officials refuse to take responsibility. 

The Yes on 2 campaign, which was endorsed by the Jackson County Democratic Committee and other parts of the party infrastructure, was a statewide collaboration that got the job done. The victory came in a few critical areas: St. Charles County, Green County, Platte County and Eastern Jackson County.  As we saw with other ballot issues in 2016, areas that used to be Republican strongholds are coming around steadily to issues championed by Democratic officials and voters.  This is great news for the thousands across the state who will now have access to health care and for the prospects of the November election in areas most important to our state-wide and local Democratic candidates.  Thanks for your vote!
