Jones hints at run at Attorney General

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.
