In 2016, most polls had Eric Grietens about where he is right now. Conservatives rallied to Peter Kinder, the Lt. Governor. Rush Limbaugh, John Danforth, Dana Loesch, and others supported him. John Brunner got the Gun Owners of America vote, Mike Huckabee, and Rand Paul. Catherine Hanaway got support from Kit Bond, Ann Wagner, and Nikki Haley.
