Cindy Slimp has been busy going door to door over the last few months talking to voters. The Democrat is running against incumbent Republican, Curtis Trent, in the race for Missouri House District 133.
Slimp was raised by a single mom who she describes as a powerhouse with a big heart. They lived for several years with her grandparents on a small farm, and Slimp said her mom and grandparents worked hard to make sure the kids had everything they needed. But times were hard.
