As a former candidate myself, I want to assure you that candidates like to be asked questions. That’s what they sign up for when they put their names on the ballot. On today’s show you’ll hear an insider’s glimpse into what makes a candidate tick.
Today we interview Lester Turilli, candidate for Governor in Missouri. Turilli, 45, may be the only gubernatorial candidate who has surrounded himself with a prayer team which prays daily for revival in the state. His genuine love for the people of Missouri is second only to his love for God. He approaches the gubernatorial race with a commitment to positive campaigning, integrity, and social justice.
