Wondering Who Will Show in 2012 in the Show-Me State . . .
It seems a little early to spend a lot of time writing about the 2012 Senate races, but after Roy Blunt’s big win in Missouri this year, it seems likely that the 2012 race between (presumably) incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill and her GOP challenger will be a competitive one, and a promising opportunity for a GOP takeover. And there are already rumblings in the “Show Me” State about who might run on the Republican side . . .
Is Ann Wagner eyeing a run for the U.S. Senate?
“The straight answer is that I’m absolutely thinking about it and seriously considering it,” she said Tuesday on KMOX.
Wagner ran Roy Blunt’s successful Senate campaign, once chaired the national Republican Party and served as President Bush’s ambassador to Luxembourg.
“Any one of the statewide offices I’d be interested in, and certainly the United States Senate,” she told talk host Mark Reardon…
Her decision, she said, would be based on what others, like Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder and former Senator Jim Talent, decide to do in 2012.
