eMailbag on GOP Gov Candidates

With all the GOP gubernatorial candidates, it’s interesting none are from the KC area. With St. Louis and outstate split up, a strong KC-area candidate could be well positioned.  But KC lacks any strongly visible GOP leaders; Ryan Silvey may be an exception, and he could also draw GOP union members and Medicaid supporters statewide, which could be 5-10% of the primary vote.  It won’t happen probably because the GOP would likely lose his Senate seat if he doesn’t run for reelection, but it would be an interesting wrinkle to the jumble.
