Rep. Democrat Cori Bush of Missouri confirmed in a Friday tweet that there was a “white supremacist movement” spreading across her state and the US at large.
“We are facing a threat from a growing right-wing white supremacist movement across Missouri and this country,” Bush tweeted. “But I have seen the strength we hold when we are united. We have proven it & we will never back down. There is so much at stake. Let’s continue this work. Together.”
His posts include campaign advertisements – the leftist lawmaker, who took office last year, is currently running for re-election.

Liberal actor Mark Ruffalo has urged people to donate to Bush. “Hi everyone, @CoriBush is in a tight main race against a very corporate democrat. We already have a lot of them, and there is only one Cori Bush fighting for all of us. Let’s all tag along and send him the funds,” Ruffalo tweeted on Friday.
In a statement last month about the US Supreme Court, Bush stated that “the Court’s jurisprudence on white supremacy is unfair, profound, and dangerous.”
In a tweet posted to his @RepCori account on Friday, Bush claimed that “codifying the right to abortion” would “further reproductive, economic, and racial justice.”
At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing earlier this week, one of the witnesses, University of California, Berkeley School of Law professor Khiara M. Bridges, accused GOP Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri of pursuing a “question line” he described as “transphobia.”
Bush praised Bridges, calling the professor “a new personal hero.”
“I would like to introduce everyone to my new personal hero, Professor Khiara Bridges,” Bush tweeted. “Members of our trans community and all of us in Missouri who hold on to their hearts because their rights are being viciously opposed by people like Hawley, thank you Professor.”
