Democrats say Claire McCaskill’s announcement Monday that she will not run for Missouri governor in 2016 gives the party a relatively clear horizon for the next two election cycles. Attorney General Chris Koster now is seen as the favorite to be the party’s gubernatorial nominee next year, and McCaskill is “very likely” to run for re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2018.
