Missouri Attorney General Announces Campaign to Stay in Office


  • Incumbent Republican Missouri AG Eric Schmitt announced his bid for the AG’s office. AG Schmitt was appointed as AG by Governor Mike Parson in January 2019 to succeed Josh Howley, who vacated the AG’s office after winning the November 2018 race for the U.S. Senate.
  • AG Schmitt is being challenged by two Democratic candidates, Elad Gross, a former Missouri Assistant Attorney General, and Richard Finneran, a former federal prosecutor.
