Democrat Cort Van Ostran Runs Against Republican Candidate Wagner

August 02, 2018 - 10:23 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Attorney Cort Van Ostran is running in the Democratic primary to go against Republican Congresswoman Ann Wagner.  But KMOX News asked why this heavily Republican district would go blue.

“I think there’s a lot of energy on the ground I think people are ready for a representative who shows up, who listens, and who is fighting for real people in the district instead of corporate special interests, and I think that the second district is ready for change,” he says.

He says a lot of Trump voters are feeling a hangover. But first Van Ostran has to beat other Democrats on Tuesday, including veteran Mark Osmack.
