CAPE GIRARDEAU - Peter Kinder announced his plans to run for re-election as lieutenant governor.
In making the announcement, Kinder, a Republican, was critical of Gov. Jay Nixon, a Democrat.
"I believe after numerous conversations with Dave Spence that he is the Republican Party's best chance of defeating Jay Nixon. Dave is a self-made man and proven manager who understands how to create jobs and improve the state's economy. He is smart, serious and has a vision he's shared with me to renew Missouri's greatness. I am proud to call him a friend and will do everything in my power to see that he's elected governor next year," continued Kinder.
