It sounds like Missouri’s House Speaker wants to move across the street when term limits take him out of the House at the end of 2014.
Tim Jones (R-Eureka) has previously said he is considering several state offices for a 2016 run. He says one is beginning to stand out.
“I’m being greatly encouraged by many others to look at Attorney General. As a former prosecuting attorney, it’s somethinig that’s interested me. It’s also a working office, very much like the Speaker’s office, and we’re taking a very hard look at that because I’m getting encouragement from all across the state to do so.”
Jones says a formal announcement of a campaign won’t be made for a while.
