Catherine Hanaway (r) is “officially” a candidate for Governor in 2016. As for Attorney General Chris Koster (D) and State Auditor Tom Schweich (r) – not just yet. State Auditor Tom Schweich (r) does not have major party opposition for his 2014 reelection campaign. Interestingly, he is raising a lot of money:
