Responding to the surprising announcement that Rep. Ann Wagner (R-St. Louis County) will not run for the Senate, other Republican politicos are beginning to make moves.

Vicky Hartzler (R-Harrisonville/Columbia) is letting it be known that she is considering entering the Senate race, too. Much will happen here in the coming weeks, as the political jockeying will begin to reach its peak. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) is the two-term incumbent and will seek re-election next year.
