McDonald faces incumbent Mike Lair of Chillicothe in August in the 7th District. Dr. Bailey is seeking the position currently held by Nate Walker of Kirksville in the 3rd District. Walker also is running for re-election. No Democrats filed for either of those positions.

McDonald said he's farmed 41 years northwest of Galt. He's been a farrow to finish hog farmer 25 years, and a cattle farmer the last 35 years specializing in rotational grazing. McDonald also has been a School Board member 22 years. He said he's seen government overreach into schools, businesses, farms, and homes to a point he's had to respond. McDonald said he'd be a voice for citizens of Livingston, Linn, and Grundy Counties. He said he's a fiscal and social conservative.

McDonald said solutions to problems are found in the founding principles of the country. McDonald said he's running because he loves America, and America is worth fighting for. McDonald also said he looks forward to meeting with constituents of the 7th District to learn about their concerns.

Dr. John Bailey of Kirksville, who's running for he position now held by Nate Walker, is an orthopedic surgeon, retired Army officer, and auxiliary Adair County deputy sheriff. Dr. Bailey described himself as the true conservative for north Missouri. Dr. Bailey said he does not believe Missouri's medicaid system should be expanded. Bailey called expansion of medicaid an implementation of Obamacare in Missouri, and Missourians want government out of their lives. Dr. Bailey said he believes in lowering the tax burden on working families, defending constitutional rights, and standing for traditional Missouri values.

Dr. Bailey said he's running because there's a need for fewer politicians and more physicians advocating for the welfare of north Missouri families. He mentioned concern for the future of north Missouri and its residents, including his son, Lucas.

Dr. Bailey cited his experience in the medical field, and his service to the Country and community as reasons he's qualified to seek the position of State Representative.

He's been a former Chief of Staff at Northeast Regional Medical Center, and an Athletic Department physician at Truman State University.

Dr. Bailey noted he's been named a Missouri deputy sheriff of the year in 2008, and was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame in 2012 for service to the Truman State University Athletic Department and local athletes.

Dr. Bailey attained the rank of Major in the United States Army. He was stationed at Kosovo, where he provided orthopedic surgical services to American service personnel, and was Chief of Orthopedic Services at Fort Carson during Operation Iraqi freedom.

The 3rd House District includes Mercer, Sullivan, Putnam, and western Adair Counties.

The Missouri House 8th District saw Democrat Ted Rights of Hamilton file yesterday. The only other candidate for that job is Republican incumbent Jim Neeley of Cameron, who's filed for re-election.

Candidates for the 2nd House seat now held by Casey Guernsey of Bethany are Republican J. Eggleston of Maysville and Democrat Mike Waltemath of King City.
Guernsey is not running.

Republican Dan Hegeman of Cosby is the only candidate for 12th District State Senator---a position now held by Brad Lager. Lager is term limited from running for
re-election.

Republican Sam Graves has competition in his bid for re-election to 6th District Congressman. Other candidates are Republicans Kyle Reid of Louisiana, Brian Tharp of Rockport, and Christopher Ryan of Liberty; Democrats Bill Hedge of St. Joseph, Edward Dwayne Fields of Kansas City, and Gary Lynn Crose of Gladstone; and
Libertarian Russ Monchil of Cameron.
