Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler noted that she's been underestimated before.During a campaign stop in Lake St. Louis on Friday, Hartzler alluded to 2010 when she first ran for Congress. She wasn't favored in the GOP primary and people weren't expecting her to unseat Ike Skelton. She ended up winning and has served in Congress since 2011.Now as she navigates former President Donald Trump's decision not to endorse her in the U.S. Senate primary, Hartzler is banking on barnstorming across the state in the campaign's final days — and emphasizing backing from prominent Missouri Republican officials and groups.
