Cunningham for Senate?
Former Sen. Jane Cunningham has formed a candidate committee to run for Senate 16. The rumors have been on and off about Cunningham making a comeback. Since her senate district disappeared in the last redistricting, she moved from Chesterfield to Osage Beach, and folks thought it was the end of her life in public service. But now it appears she is at the very least mulling a return.
The current senator in District 16, Sen. Dan Brown, is term limited. His son, Justin, is running to replace him. Additionally, Rep. Diane Franklin has announced for the seat.
Last quarter, Brown raised $3,500 and Franklin raised $15,270, so neither has exactly slammed the door on further primary entrants.
Originally in November 14 MOScout.
