Frustrated with Missouri’s new restrictive abortion law, state Auditor Nicole Galloway says she will enter the Democratic gubernatorial primary to eventually challenge Gov. Mike Parson (R) who will be running for his first term. Gov. Parson was elected Lt. Governor in 2016 after serving twelve years in the Missouri legislature and another dozen years as the Polk County Sheriff. Mr. Parson ascended to the Governorship when elected Gov. Eric Greitens was forced to resign over a sexual scandal. The Governor will be favored for election, but Ms. Galloway will be capable of running a competitive race.
