Today, Senator Wayne Wallingford officially filed for reelection to represent the 27th District.

“It has been a great honor to serve Southeast Missouri in the Missouri Senate, and I hope to have the opportunity to serve my friends and neighbors in the region for another term,” Wallingford said. “I am proud of the work that our Republican majority has been able to do, but I know that there is still much more work ahead of us to get Missouri back on the right track.”

During his time in the Missouri Senate, Wallingford has a proven track record of supporting and passing measures to ensure smaller government and common sense conservative solutions to problems facing Missourians.

Wallingford was first elected to the Missouri House of Representatives in 2010 and was elected as State Senator in 2012.

Wallingford served in the United States Air Force for 25 years, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel after a career including five tours in Vietnam and six tours as part of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. For his service, he received 47 medals including the Silver Star and Distinguished Flying Cross.

Wallingford currently resides in Cape Girardeau with his wife, Suzy.  He and his wife are members of Cape Bible Chapel and are proud parents of two children and six grandchildren.
