U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II may have to learn to appreciate mud runs if he wants to stay in Congress. Missouri state lawmakers drew up a map that extends the former mayor of Kansas City's district into Ray and Saline counties.
An upcoming event in Richmond gives Cleaver the opportunity to get a feel for his new domain. On Saturday, May 7, at the Ray County Fair Grounds, truck owners will gather to test their skills at traversing a mud bog that's 200 feet long.
If you like revving engines and the possibility of having your cheek kissed by a moist piece of dirt kicked from the tread of a big-ass tire, then Richmond is the place to be next weekend.
What do you say, Rev. Cleaver, you love your country and like it loud?
