Republican candidates hope strong showing by Trump will help down ballot races

CHESTERFIELD, MO (KPLR) – Gubernatorial candidate Eric Greitens along with supporters of Jay Ashcroft and Eric Schmitt, candidates for Secretary of State and Treasurer will be gathering Tuesday night eager to see if a strong turnout in Missouri for Donald Trump reaches down the ticket to those races.

The communications director for the Missouri Trump campaign tells me that has been the campaign's goal for the past month and a half.
