Lebanon, Missouri – Taylor Burks for Congress announced today that Lebanon businessman Doug Russell, former State Chairman of the Missouri Republican Party, is joining his team as Campaign Chairman. 

Russell is the President of the Durham Company in Lebanon, Missouri, and led the Missouri GOP from 2005-2009. He has a long track record in Missouri politics and government, serving two stints on the University of Missouri System Board of Curators, part of the leadership team for Governor Matt Blunt’s 2004 campaign, and most recently served as treasurer for then-Attorney General Josh Hawley’s campaign committee. 

“Taylor has the background and experiences which make him a perfect fit to represent the conservative values of the 4th Congressional District. He has what it takes to stand up to the politicians in Washington and against the failed policies of the Biden Administration. We need a candidate that understands the dangerous world we live in, and the threats of the socialists’ agenda on our individual rights. Taylor is that candidate, and I am proud to join the grassroots team he has grown from the ground up,” said Russell.
