Despite months of speculation and tweets this week indicating a big announcement, former Missouri State Senator Jane Cunningham says she's not going to run for St. Louis County Executive.
The West County Republican says the party has another candidate in mind, but declined to name names. Cunningham says voters should expect an announcement on Monday.
There had been some criticism of a potential run by Cunningham, since she's only one year into a six-year term as director of the Monarch Fire Protection District and had promised constituents that she wouldn't leave the post early.
The GOP will formally nominate a candidate for County Executive in the August primary.
