NEOSHO, Mo. — One candidate running for a seat in the House of Representative makes a local campaign stop.

Republican Eric Burlison, who’s running for U.S. Congress (Missouri’s 7th Congressional District seat), stopped in Neosho late this afternoon (3/25) for a “meet-and-greet.”

The Weston Place event hall in downtown Neosho hosted the “meet-and-greet,” where many local residents gathered to meet Burlison.

Photo’s from that event can be seen in the slideshow above.

Burlison currently holds office in Missouri as a State Senator for the 20th District.

Prior to becoming a State Senator, Burlison served as a State Representative.

Now that U.S. Congressman, Billy Long (R) is seeking a U.S. Senate seat, Long’s position as Representative from Missouri’s 7th Congressional District, is left to be filled later this year by voters.

Eric Burlison is one of several candidates for Missouri’s 7th Congressional District that have filed to be on the ballot.

The filing deadline for prospective candidates is March 29th.
