(KMOV.com) – Democratic Missouri State Senator Jill Schupp recently announced she will be challenging sitting GOP Congresswoman Ann Wagner.

Jill Schupp

Wagner represents the second congressional district, which covers Arnold, Chesterfield and Wildwood. The district is Republican-leaning but Wagner’s margin of victory in 2018 was reduced compared with previous elections.

“I've lived in this community my whole life. I know the people, they are my neighbors they are my friends, this is my community, people have told me over and over they believe the current congresswoman is out of touch,” Schupp said.

News 4 contacted the Wagner campaign and they sent us the following statement: 

"Jill Schupp? She already dropped out of the race once. We're not going to comment on the Democrat primary this far out from Election Day."
