CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - Governor Mike Parson stopped in Cape Girardeau on Monday, November 2, during his “Get Out the Vote” statewide flying tour.

Gov. Parson was scheduled to land at the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport at 3 p.m. to meet and greet local supporters, but was running behind schedule.

“You know I feel good," the governor said. "I think Missouri is by far stay red. I think it’s going to be a good day for the president. I think it will be a good day for me as the governor of the state of Missouri and all these gentlemen behind me state wide. I think it’s going to be a good red sweep on Tuesday, I’m confident of that as we made these 40 stops the last week. People are enthused they are out, understanding the importance of this election and I’m just telling them I know Missourians well enough those Missouri values are going to come to the forefront and they are going to want people in leadership with common sense to stand up for their military, stand up for law enforcement, stand up for their businesses and want to shrink governments instead of grow governments and that’s gonna be the huge difference.”

Other Missouri elected officials and special guests, Ann Dorn, John Brunner and Mike Deering of the Missouri Cattlemen’s Association, joined Gov. Parson during the campaign stop.

This was the governor’s fifth stop of the day before Tuesday’s election.

Parson started his tour in Jefferson City before heading to St. Joseph, Kirksville and Hannibal. His final stop will be in Cassville at 6 p.m.

Attendees at each event are encouraged to wear masks and practice social distancing.

His challenger, Nichole Galloway campaigned on Monday in Columbia and St. Louis.

On Tuesday, she plans to be in Columbia as the election results roll in.
