ST. LOUIS ( -- Former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens could re-enter the political spotlight sooner than most people thought.

The State of Missouri has a provision that would allow Greitens to run as an Independent in the upcoming election for one of Missouri’s two U.S. Senate seats.

To do so, he would need to acquire the signatures of 10,000 registered voters by July 30. Should he get the required numbers, he could appear on the ballot against Republican Josh Hawley and Democrat Claire McCaskill.
