(Jefferson City) Eric Greitens’ return to Missouri politics is official.
The former governor filed papers Tuesday to run in the Republican primary for the U-S Senate seat being vacated this year by fellow Republican Roy Blunt.
Greitens voiced a common and incorrect G-O-P theme by calling the results of the 2020 election into question.
One of his opponents in the G-O-P race, Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler, also filed Tuesday.
She took a jab at the former governor saying “It is not conservative to tie a woman up in your basement and assault her.”
Greitens resigned as governor following accusations of sexual assault and improper campaign solicitations.
