A really, really early look at Missouri's 2024 elections
Josh Hawley is nearing the end of his first term in the U.S. Senate, and Missouri Democrats are already jumping in the race to challenge him — although they'll have a difficult time winning a statewide contest. There's also a highly contested GOP field developing for Missouri governor, with Gov. Mike Parson not up for re-election.
Last week, St. Louis County Prosecutor Wesley Bell joined Lucas Kunce in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate, with hopes of taking on Republican Sen. Josh Hawley.
Meanwhile, Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft and Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe are two of the biggest names looking to step up to the governor's mansion.
