Former Lembke Staffer for House?

Jamey Murphy, former staffer to Jim Lembke, signaled a possible state rep run yesterday, tweeting this: “I have been asked by many friends and supporters to run for the Missouri House. #decisioncomingsoon”

 

Murphy would be running in House 108 where Rep. Chuck Gatschenberger is termed and running for Senate.  It’s said that Murphy would have Gatschy’s support.  If so, that’d make him the early front-runner.

 

Murphy was thrust into ten-minutes of Missouri twitter fame during the redistricting process when he used his twitter account to blast the fellow Republicans who he felt were leaving his boss vulnerable with a bad map.  Lembke ultimately was felled in the tougher district by Sen. Scott Sifton.
