Bob Parker Announces Bid for MO-08

Following on the surprise resignation of Jo Ann Emerson (R-MO), her primary challenger in 2010 and 2012 has announced his intention to seek the seat she's vacating. Emerson has held the seat in rural southeast Missouri since 1996.

Parker made his announcement on his Facebook page (screenshot at right) at 6PM Tuesday evening.

Candidates for the 2013 special election will be selected by the committeemen and women of each party. Other candidates are considering the race, so this could turn into a free for all as each scrambles to secure the support of committeemen and women across the district. The Republican committee members for the 8th Congressional District are listed on the Missouri GOP website.
