Schweich Starts Run for GOP Nod for Governor

Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich launched his bid for the Republican nomination for Governor Wednesday afternoon in St Louis.
Schweich says he run on a platform of ending political corruption in state government, advancing the state’s economy and getting better schools.
Schweich’s decision to run sets up a potentially intense Republican primary in 2016.
Former Missouri House Speaker Catherine Hanaway has already started her campaign.
Democratic Attorney Gendral Chris Koster is expected to run in 2016.
Missouri Democrat Claire McCaskill announced she would not run for Governor earlier this month.
Wednesday, Hanaway campaign spokesman Nick Maddux blasted the new Candidiate.
“Conservative activists throughout Missouri believe primaries have repeatedly cost the Republican Party statewide elections. Today, Auditor Schweich chose to create yet another primary. Auditor Schweich’s electoral record is marked by relentless pursuits of the next office and tearing apart the Republican Party.”
