The massive district includes Cooper, Howard and Saline counties in the 939 the Eagle mid-Missouri listening area, but also includes three western Missouri counties: Lafayette, Ray and Clay. The winner of the Gregory/Richey primary will face Liberty Democrat Jim Bates in November. Representative Gregory joined us live on 939 the Eagle’s “Wake Up Mid-Missouri”, telling listeners that he had a good fundraiser last night in Columbia. Gregory is a former Mizzou football captain who helped lead the successful passage of bipartisan NIL legislation. NIL stands for name, image and likeness.

Gregory says the bill is an amazing opportunity for student-athletes in Missouri, and not just at Mizzou. Representative Gregory also supports House Speaker Dean Plocher’s (R-Des Peres) creation of a new House Special Committee on Illegal Immigrant Crimes. Speaker Plocher will be holding a press conference shortly at the Statehouse. Representative Gregory also discussed agriculture and rural towns in his district, including Blackburn and Alma:
