Is everyone in Missouri running for Senate?
When Missouri Republican Roy Blunt announced that he would retire from the U.S. Senate, it set off a massive battle to claim his seat. Some of the state’s most prominent Republicans are going after the nomination, and one another.
The race for the open U.S. Senate seat from Missouri is heating up, certainly between U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler and the controversial former Gov. Eric Greitens. "It is not conservative to tie a woman up in your basement and assault her," Hartzler said of Greitens.
The campaign entered a new chapter last week, with most of the candidates showing up in Jefferson City for filing day at the Secretary of State’s office. Brian Ellison talks about the contest with Rudi Keller, deputy editor of the Missouri Independent.
