U.S. Representative Vicky Hartzler Eyes Senate Run
U.S. Representative Vicky Hartzler is considering a run for retiring Senator Roy Blunt’s seat, according to the Associated Press.
Hartzler said today (Thursday) that she’ll make an announcement next Thursday at a gun store and shooting range in suburban Kansas City.
Other Republicans seeking the office include former Governor Eric Greitens, current Attorney General Eric Schmitt and St. Louis attorney Mark McCloskey.
Five Democrats are also vying for the seat, although according to the Associated Press they have an uphill battle in Republican-leaning Missouri due to lack of name recognition.
