Missouri senator forgoes re-election bid

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A state senator from eastern Missouri is forgoing a re-election bid, potentially setting off a scramble among Republicans vying to replace him in the reliably GOP district.
 
Republican Sen. Brian Nieves, of Washington, withdrew Thursday after initially filing for re-election.
 
One candidate, House Republican Dave Schatz, of Sullivan, had already filed to challenge Nieves. But with Nieves' exit, Republican House Speaker Tim Jones, of Eureka, is now also considering a run.
 
Jones says he will take time next week to weigh his options. Nieves did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
 
A potential primary could be an expensive contest. Schatz loaned his campaign $350,000, and Jones reports having $900,000 in his campaign account.
 
The Senate district includes Franklin County and parts of western St. Louis County.

St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley is expected to announce his campaign for reelection Thursday night.

Dooley's term is up in 2014. St. Louis County Councilman Steve Stenger and Republican Tony Pousosa announced last month they intend to seek the seat.

Dooley has been county executive since 2003.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich has more than a half-million dollars in his campaign account with a little over a year to go before he is up for re-election.

The Republican auditor released his quarterly campaign finance figures Friday, though they did not have to be filed with the Missouri Ethics Commission until next Tuesday.

The report shows that Schweich raised nearly $281,000 from July through September. After expenses, Schweich reported almost $506,000 in his campaign account as of Sept. 30.

Schweich said that puts him in a strong financial position.

The only Democrat to announce a challenge to Schweich is state Rep. Jay Swearingen, of Kansas City. He has not filed a campaign finance report yet.
