JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens has filed paperwork with the Missouri Ethics Commission to run for statewide office in 2024.

The filing doesn’t mean he is running for office, just that he is extending his political committee that would allow him to run if he chooses.

That would also be the same election that the Missouri governor’s seat would be on the ballot again.

He had already filed this paperwork previously, the one filed yesterday is just an extension.

There has been talk in political circles that he may be looking to run for Senate.

Senator Roy Blunt’s term is up in 2022, but 2024 would correspond with the term of Sen. Josh Hawley.

However, filing paperwork with the Missouri Ethics Commission is only for statewide races, not federal ones.
