As the “Power Player of the Week,” Fox News Sunday profiled Governor Eric Greitens (R-MO), a former Navy SEAL and Rhodes Scholar, and his new take on politics in Jefferson City.
Greitens emphasized leadership and a willingness “to go to the frontlines” when speaking with host Chris Wallace.
According to Wallace, instead of hosting a cocktail party for establishment politicians for his first official Governor’s Mansion event, Greitens invited three foster families to dinner.
“As governor, we can make a difference in [foster] kids’ lives. As governor, we can keep our promises to the people of Missouri,” Greitens said.
Greitens also criticized a lack of leadership during the Ferguson riots, saying it inspired him to run for office.
“Ferguson was a tremendous failure. If we had a leader who showed up with any kind of command presence and courage and calm and clarity, we could have had peace by the second night,” Greitens said.
Greitens has so far stuck to his belief of a frontlines governor, working out with law enforcement and personally distributing food to the poor.
