Those visiting the office Friday were encouraged to grab campaign signs for their yards.

â??This is just the beginning of a good 45 days until the August primary and we're looking forward to it. We have cake here today and Iâ??m really excited about this campaign. Iâ??ve been so appreciative and so humbled by the support that the community has given me and this is my first term in office and Iâ??ve worked very hard to represent the whole community,â?? said Walker.

He was endorsed by the Missouri State Teachers Association for his dedication.

Next up, Walker and campaign friends will attend the 4th of July parades throughout the Heartland beginning in downtown Kirksville at 9:30 a.m.
