Hanaway resigning committeewoman post to run for governor
(KTVI) – “You Decide 2016”, former Missouri House Speaker Catherine Hanaway will resign her post as “National Committeewoman” for the “Republican State Central Committee”, effective in May, to pursue “another endeavor.”
That “other endeavor” is her previously announced 2016 run for Missouri governor.
State Auditor Tom Schweich is widely expected to challenge Hanaway for the GOP nomination.
Attorney General Chris Koster has said he intends to seek the democratic nomination.
Democratic Governor Jay Nixon can’t seek a third term due to Missouri’s term-limits law.
