Issue Position: Values
As a wife, mother, and grandmother, the values our nation holds dear are important to Jo Ann. She understands that the morals we teach and uphold in Southern Missouri are the backbone of our way of life. That's why she has worked to defend the sacred institution of marriage and to protect the rights of the unborn. She believes those rights ought to be reflected in the highest laws of our land, the U.S. Constitution, along with the protection of prayer and our American flag. Jo Ann Emerson champions the Southern Missouri family at every opportunity.
