A State Senator from rural western Missouri has announced he'll seek the Republican nomination for Secretary of State next year.
Bill Stouffer (R, Napton) was first elected to the Missouri Senate in 2004 and re-elected in 2008.
He made an unsuccessful bid for Congress last year, losing the GOP nod to Vicky Hartzler in Missouri's 4th District. Hartzler later unseated incumbent Democrat Ike Skelton.
