It appears that former state Treasurer Sarah Steelman could also officially throw her proverbial hat into next year's U.S. Senate contest.
Here's a statement from the former statewide official.
Steelman has been mulling a U.S. Senate bid ever since U.S. Sen. Kit Bond, R-Missouri, announced that he would not seek re-election. She lost to U.S. Rep. Kenny Hulshof, R-Columbia, in last year's GOP primary for governor.
