Missouri Democratic lawmaker seeks to replace Carnahan

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A Democratic Missouri lawmaker says he will run for secretary of state, seeking to replace Robin Carnahan who has announced that she is not running for re-election.

Rep. Jason Kander, of Kansas City, said Friday he was entering the race. Kander's announcement came about a half-hour after Carnahan announced she would not seek a third term.

Kander, a lawyer, is 30 years old and was first elected to the House in 2008. He also has served as a military intelligence officer in Afghanistan.

Republican state Sens. Scott Rupp, of Wentzville, and Bill Stouffer, of Napton, already had announced plans to run for secretary of state before Carnahan's announcement.
