Filing Day for candidates]
Susan Montee (D): Hi, how are you?
Voice: Very Good, how are you?
Susan Montee: All exciting.
Voice: Yes, it is.
Democratic Candidate for Lt. Governor]
Second voice: What are we gonna be doing?
Susan Montee: We are here filing to, uh, run for Lieutenant Governor. This is the Secretary of State’s building here in Jeff City. And all the candidate filing starts today, goes until March twenty-seventh.
The first thing we have to do is we have to pay the state party to let you be a candidate, uh, for that party. So we’ll be stopping at the Democratic Party table.
What we’re doing there is we were filing an affidavit with the Department of Revenue that says we don’t owe any taxes. So you have to have all your personal property taxes and state taxes paid before, uh, they will accept your filing. So, now we go upstairs.
All we did there was officially put our, our name and our party and the office we’re running for into the computer so we can go on through the line, so I’m, I’m almost an official candidate now.
[to a reporter] Yeah, I’m running for Lieutenant Governor, I’m, I’m excited about it. I’ve been in since, uh, October.
This where we draw the numbers, uh, to determine ballot order. Everybody gets a number and then, uh, they record them all and then put you in that order for today. So this is the first day lottery.
Voice: Are you ready?
Susan Montee: I am ready.
Jo Mannies, St. Louis Beacon: [inaudible] telling people why they should vote for you?
Susan Montee: What, in the primary or in the general?
Jo Mannies: In the, in the primary.
Susan Montee: Well, in the primary. You know, I’m the best candidate.
And now I am an official candidate for Lieutenant Governor.
I think that, uh, I’m ready to move forward, start the race and win this in November. All good now.
Interestingly, the office of Lieutenant Governor has attracted the largest number of candidates for a single office. The candidates include five women and six men. There are no female republican candidates for Lieutenant Governor.
