Missouri Congressman Todd Akin is revising a decade of federal ethics reports to note his stake in some family real estate matters.
The House Republican, who's running for U.S. Senate, is amending his personal financial disclosure reports for 2001 through 2010 to show his stake in property owned by family partnerships in the St. Louis area and Cape Cod, Mass.
As we told you about briefly this morning, Republican Missouri House Speaker Steven Tilley has officially announced his candidacy for Lt. Governor.
Tilley, an optometrist from Perryville, has been a State Representative since 2005, and spent four years as Majority Floor Leader before becoming Speaker. He says his experience as a lawmaker is a big asset, as the Lt. Governor serves as the official head of the Missouri Senate.
The team behind Republican U.S. Rep. Todd Akin's campaign for U.S. Senate announced the addition of a new member today, Chris LaCivita. LaCivita was "chief strategist for Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, and co-producer of their award winning ads," according to a release from Akin's team.
"Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" was the group involved in disputing the military record of former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry in the 2004 election.
