A huge billboard saying “Dexter is Biden Country” went up in Dexter, Missouri–in the Southeast “bootheel” of the state. Apparently there are lots of howls from right wingers there. But also a lot of local Democrats saying finally the party isn’t abandoning them (though I’m not sure who paid for the billboard).
Of course Stoddard County won’t go blue. They voted 83% for Trump in 2016. But completely writing these counties off is what helped put Hillary Clinton so far behind the Obama totals in Missouri. There’s a lot of talk that the rural GOP base hit it’s high in 2016 and is settling back to Obana era levels for this year….
