Republican hopefuls for the seat of Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson in the 8th Congressional District met for a public forum last night in Cape Girardeau. The Southeast Missouri Pachyderm Club's committee will set the slate on who will represent the Republican side of the ticket during the upcoming special election later this year. There was a large crowd to hear twelve of the thirteen candidates vying for the seat.
