Bruner &amp Greitens Form Exploratory Committees

(AP) – Suburban St. Louis businessman John Brunner (BRUH’-ner) is gearing up for another potential run at a top Missouri office.

Brunner filed paperwork Thursday creating an exploratory committee for a Republican campaign for governor in 2016.

Brunner ran for U.S. Senate in 2012 but lost in the Republican primary to former Congressman Todd Akin.

Missouri’s gubernatorial field has been in flux since the Feb. 26 suicide of Auditor Tom Schweich (shwyk), who was running for governor.

Former U.S. Attorney and Missouri House Speaker Catherine Hanaway and former state Rep. Randy Asbury already are running.

Former Navy SEAL and author Eric Greitens (GRY-tens) also has created an exploratory committee, and others have said they are considering the race..
