Missouri GOP Primaries Getting More Complicated?


Rep. Todd Akin, Missouri Republican, is thinking of running for Senate against incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill. The other Republicans already in the race are Ed Martin and Sarah Steelman.

Ann Wagner – last seen running for RNC Chair – formed an exploratory committee to run in Akin’s Second District if the seat opens up.

Martin, currently running for Senate, is making noises about switching to the House race.
