ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- The St. Louis mayoral race received another high-level endorsement Monday, when former Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander released a video on Twitter supporting Tishaura Jones.

In the 45-second video, Kander called Jones a friend and recalled her early support of his candidacy for the U.S. Senate. The two worked together in the Missouri House of Representatives, both winning a seat in 2008.

Kander also praised Jones’ work as St. Louis’ treasurer, a post she has held since 2012.

Kander’s endorsement follows formal declarations of support from several organizations and political figures in recent weeks.

The firefighters union publicly endorsed Lewis Reed, while the police union and outgoing mayor Francis Slay endorsed Lyda Krewson.

The mayoral primary will be held March 7.
