Missouri’s US Senate candidates popping tops on social media

It may not match the buzzword level of yesterday’s tastes good/less filling beer battle, or capture the stern corporate confrontation of the Busch vs. Miller clash of a generation ago.

But make no mistake: we have a new beer war on our hands.

Missouri’s two lead candidates for US Senate, Republicans Eric Schmitt and Democrat Trudy Busch Valentineslammed their tops over hops on Twitter.

It all started on Thursday at 18:00:

Missouri Attorney General Schmitt released a message that referenced an email sent by the Valentine campaign that, along with a monetary demand, indicated that this season was now officially in the Pumpkin Spice Latte season. season has occurred.

So Schmitt, who loves to post photos from his backyard grill — snaps that include pork steaks and Busch Light beer — took a shot at the wealthy Valentine:

While my opponent The Heiress Valentine is emailing people about the start of Pumpkin Spice Latte season, I’m here to remind Missourians that it’s Busch Light Camo Can season.

(Hmm, so maybe it’s a culture war in the form of a beer war?)

Then, about an hour later, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Valentine’s campaign released a non-response response to Schmitt’s shot:

I have to spend tonight in Kansas City at the Gaels Public House — an ice-cold Busch Light is always better with friends,” read the Valentine’s post (sans exactly that Schmitt did not belong to this circle of friends).

With all this data available, this bureau feels comfortable making an early prediction of the winner in this race: Anheuser-Busch products.

The question of whether Schmitt or Valentine or one of several minor candidates will go to the US Senate to replace the Republican Roy Blunt will be set on November 8th.
