Christian County Republicans dis-invite Senator Blunt to annual dinner because of vote against President Trump

OZARK, Mo. -- Christian County's Republican Party disinvited Missouri U.S. Senator Roy Blunt for its annual dinner because of one vote.

Party leaders say they are protesting the senator's vote against President Trump's emergency declaration to build a southern border wall. The resolution against the president passed in the U.S. Senate thanks to several Republicans going against party lines.

The senator's office tells KY3 News the courts will settle the border issue. He did not comment on the protest.
