Republican Asbury drops out of race for Missouri governor

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Former Republican state Rep. Randy Asbury is dropping out of the 2016 race for Missouri governor.

Missouri Republican Party Chairman John Hancock said he spoke with Asbury and confirmed Friday that Asbury suspended his campaign.

In terms of fundraising, Asbury was trailing behind other candidates hoping to replace Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon, who is barred from seeking re-election because of term limits.

Asbury faced what could be a crowded GOP primary. Former Missouri House speaker and U.S. attorney Catherine Hanaway, Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder and state Sen. Bob Dixon are in the running. Former Navy SEAL Eric Greitens is expected officially announce Saturday. Suburban St. Louis businessman John Brunner says he’s making an announcement in October.

Attorney General Chris Koster is the only Democrat to say he plans to run.
