HANNIBAL, Mo. — U.S Rep. Billy Long, R-Mo., made a stop in America’s Hometown Tuesday evening as he continues his drive to claim the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Roy Blunt.

Long, who replaced Blunt in 2011 as the representative for Missouri’s 7th Congressional District when Blunt moved to the Senate, said that he’s not a politician, and that makes him different from others running for the Republican nomination.
