Missouri Democratic Attorney General Chris Koster is running for a second term. Koster's campaign said today that he had announced his re-election bid at the home of the Jackson County Democratic Party chairman.
Koster says under his leadership the attorney general's office helped prosecute crime, tackled fraud and tried to prevent the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from breaching a Mississippi River levee in southeastern Missouri.
No Republican candidate has announced plans yet to run for attorney general next year.
