A former "America's Got Talent" winner is stepping back into the spotlight. Neal Boyd tells The Southeast Missourian that he is ready for another run at political office. The Sikeston, Missouri native announced Thursday that he is running as a Republican for a seat in the Missouri House. Boyd won the 2008 version of "America's Got Talent". He ran for office last year in Missouri's 149th District, losing to Democratic incumbent Steve Hodges in the November general election. Hodges cannot seek re-election in 2014 due to term limits.
