Report: Sanders Leaving MoDem Post

The website ‘Tony’s Kansas City’,reports Missouri Democratic Chairman, Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders will leave his post as one of the leaders of the state’s Democrats later this month.
Sanders has not been shy about telling Missouri Democrats he intends to leave.
It is also not clear Sanders will join in the fight to name his replacement.
Sanders has told insiders they can battle that outside themselves. Sanders expects Missouri Democrats will find a replacement for him by late summer.
Despite GOP dominance in the Missouri Legislature, Democrats won four out of five statewide offices at the polls in 2012
Sanders passed up a chance for a statewide office in 2012, saying he wanted to spend more time with his growing family, but took the volunteer position as Democratic Chair, which involved lots of fundraising.
2014 will be a relatively quiet year in Missouri politics, with the top race likely to be State Auditor Tom Schweich’s bid for re-election.
2016, however, is a presidential year, the Missouri Governor Mansion will be an open seat. Jay Nixon will be termed out. Several other statewide offices will also be on the ballot
