Yinka Faleti is the Democratic candidate for Missouri secretary of state.

Yinka Faleti says he knows "what it will take to lift up the entire state, not just the special interest, not just the powerful and rich."

He came to America at age 7, and knew poverty in his family’s early years here. Faleti eventually made his way to West Point and law school, became a prosecutor, entered the nonprofit sector, and is now running as the Democratic candidate for Missouri Secretary of State.
