Kinder Eyes Congressional Seat in Missouri

Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder (R), who was recently embroiled in a scandal over strip club visits, said he is considering vying to replace the resigning Rep. Jo Ann Emerson (R-MO), the St. Louis Beacon reports.

"Kinder's statement appeared, in part, to respond to comments on Twitter that seemed to take him out of the running. Some social-media talk centered on concern that if Kinder were successful, Gov. Jay Nixon -- a Democrat -- might appoint his successor. The state law is somewhat unclear. Kinder touched on such concerns as he reflected on the process to choose a Republican nominee. Because Emerson's replacement would be chosen via a special election, the 8th District party committees will choose the nominees."
