To virtually no one’s surprise, Republican Catherine Hanaway

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 of

Barack 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.”
