|Other campaign stops along the four-day tour were made at various businesses in Springfield, Bolivar. Joplin, Ozark, Crane and Branson.|
"The employers and employees of small business are the backbone of our economy," said Long. "It is important for our next representative to take their message to Washington if we are going to find a solution to our economic problems.
"As a small businessman myself, that is just what I plan to do when the people select me to represent their interests in our nation's capital," Long added.
