Anyone hear how the Governor is doing?  Is he safe in 2012 or is he in a bit of a jam?  I haven't heard a whole lot out of him until the Joplin tornado last month.

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

A poll came out a while back showing him leading potential challengers and having strong approvals.

This and from what I can tell he has handled the tornadoes across the state very well.  I think he is relatively safe.

Quote
Missouri Republicans are growing increasingly despondent about their chances of reclaiming the governorís mansion in 2012. Peter Kinder, the front-runner for the GOP nod, hasnít even officially launched a campaign yet ó but heís already being privately written off by members of his own party.

Whatís worse: They believe the lieutenant governorís bizarre antics and undisciplined behavior have turned him into a punchline who could become a heavy drag at the top of the ticket.

The whole article is pretty comical. This guy sounds like a complete doofus.

Hopefully we can talk Nixon into running against Blunt in 2016.

I believe he is pretty strong going into 2012.

He is a sort of Moderate isn't he?

From what I understand he is probably is one of the more conservative governors that MO has has in while.

I wonder if McCaskill will ever run for governor or president?  She seems to like being a Senator, but I think she would be an ideal candidate for President and can win Iowa.

She ran for Governor in 2004, beating Bob Holden in the primary, but lost to Matt Blunt.

He lost Jasper County by almost 20 points in 2008. Will be interesting to see how he does this time.

I would like to see her run. I think she would be in a good position to win the primary and she is from a redish swing state which may help her in the general. However I think she will be in her sixties when 2016 rolls around and not to mention she seems to be in for a tough reelection. However if she wins reelection in 2012 I can she her making a run for the Whitehouse.
