is in Missouri’s 2016 governor’s race.
Hanaway, former House speaker and former U.S. attorney, issued a statement Monday afternoon:
“After serious consideration, discussion and prayer with my family, I am excited to announce that I will be a candidate for Governor in 2016.
“Missourians will face a stark choice in 2016. The polices ofBarack Obama and Chris Koster
have resulted in less economic activity, less control over our healthcare and, for some of our communities, a broken educational system.
“I want to lead Missouri in a different direction.”
